Chipped Teeth

Seattle Dentist Ethan Janson DDS provides the below examples of today's cosmetic filling materials.

These dental photos show the quality of today's filling materials, provided by downtown Seattle dentist Ethan Janson DDS.

Thank you for waiting for the tooth images to download.  I have provided large photos many times life size so that you can truly scrutinize the fine detail of anterior cosmetic fillings.

Now that the chipped tooth is filled, this patient of Dr. Janson's would like her other 10 year old and discolored filling replaced.

This treatment below is known as a Direct Veneer, essentially a filling, or facing, which we apply in the office.  Notice how we were able to match its color to the adjacent tooth.
