Fillings

Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Alan Macks uses dental fillings in his Tacoma office for restorative dentistry. The Dental fillings are used to repair small tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth.

The tooth decay, commonly known as a cavity, will be removed, cleaned of bacteria and debris, then filled and polished. In some instances, Dr. Macks will apply the filling in layers according to the color of your teeth. Once this has been done, a special light will “cure” or harden each layer of material. When the multi-layering process is completed, Dr. Macks will then shape the composite material to the desired result.

Dental fillings can be made from composite, porcelain or silver amalgam. Fillings can also be used to smooth out or even surfaces for better biting or chewing.

Absolutely the best team of dental experts around. I have been a patient of Dr. Macks since the late 1980s. I grind my teeth and have broken several, necessitating four implants. There can be a lot stress involved in such a dental history, but these folks make me feel right at home and well cared for no matter what issue I present. I'll never go anywhere else. I'm a life timer.

Wow! I had 10 root canals & lots of dental trauma before I gave up & got dentures... I only wore them when I had to, as despite many adjustments, they never fit, and made my mouth's roof & gums terribly sore, for years... Then a friend told me to see Dr.Machs. His education, background, & range of experience are stunning (I don't stun, as a rule...). As an RN, I didn't believe this Ievel of thorough evaluation, information, & genuine care was possible in this life. I can't recommend him and the staff highly enough.
