Going to the dentist for a filling used to mean having unsightly silver metal in your mouth, leaving you self-conscious about laughing or opening your mouth wide. Modern cosmetic dentistry has made tremendous advancements, including new durable tooth fillings that are color-matched to your other teeth for an invisible repair. Downriver Smiles in Spokane, WA, offers white composite fillings at our state-of-the-art dental clinic.

Old metal or amalgam fillings were used on back teeth due to the immense pressure they had to withstand from chewing. Nothing but a hard metal substance was strong enough – until now. White composite fillings are now stronger, able to stand up to the tough actions of your molars as they masticate even the hardest foods.

Our dentist is an accomplished cosmetic dentist in Spokane, and he can replace old fillings with new composite material that matches your teeth and stands up to hard use over time. Eat, smile, sing and laugh loudly without worrying about your filling being seen or coming loose. Composite fillings in Spokane are some of the simplest cosmetic changes our patients can make to improve the aesthetics of their smiles.

What is a Composite Resin?

The secret to these durable, discreet fillings is the composite resin from which they are made. Advancements in ceramics and plastics have made possible an immensely strong material that can be shaped to make any dental corrections, and then hardened quickly for complete worry-free functionality. Plus, the material can be tinted to numerous different shades to match the patient’s natural tooth color for a totally hidden repair.

Replacing old fillings with a composite resin filling can be done in a single visit to our dental clinic in Spokane. After your old filling is removed, your tooth is examined and prepped, then the composite material is molded onto your tooth and shaped. A special light is then used to harden it. Finally, our dentists polishes it for a final match and you are ready to leave with a new smile.

Are old fillings keeping you from opening your mouth wide? Replace them with new tooth-colored composite fillings at Downriver Smiles in Spokane. Contact our dental practice today for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, and ask about composite fillings. You can also ask for assistance with your dental insurance or for information about our financing options.

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!
