Fix Your Teeth With Kent Tooth Fillings

You probably don’t think much about dental fillings, at least until you have a cavity and need tooth repair. Chances are you’ll have at least one cavity sooner or later, no matter how diligent you are about brushing and flossing. On the upside, if you do develop tooth decay, you can get Kent tooth fillings from Cedar Dental Group. Our beautiful composite resin fillings offer you several benefits:

  • They are made up of tiny glass and plastic particles and are metal-free.
  • They will stop your dental pain and help you bite and chew with ease again.
  • They will match the color of your other teeth, so they blend in seamlessly with your smile.
  • They are less likely to cause the tooth to crack down the road.
  • They don’t require removing as much healthy tooth structure to place as traditional fillings do.

If you think you need a tooth filling, call us today at 253-563-0315 and we’ll get you in as soon as possible. For your convenience, we’re open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m four days a week.

Repair Dental Damage With a Composite Tooth Filling

Our beautiful fillings will get your smile back in top form if you get a cavity. Left untreated, a cavity can spread to the soft inner part of the tooth known as the pulp, causing infection and pain that would require root canal treatment. Our team will check for cavities at every dental cleaning and exam so that we can catch them early on before they have the chance to damage your smile and cause you discomfort.

If we spot decay during your checkup, your dentist can:

  • Remove the decay from your tooth
  • Place a durable, natural-looking filling
  • Give you peace of mind about your oral health
  • Restore your full chewing capacity

Restore Your Smile Comfortably With Sedation

Many people get nervous about getting a tooth filled. Our team takes this concern seriously and we’ll do all we can to help you get past your dental anxiety. We provide two great sedation options to help you relax during your tooth filling procedure. You’ll have a choice of either:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Our team will administer laughing gas through a comfortable mask over your nose. In moments, you’ll begin to feel euphoric and your stress will vanish. You’ll be able to get your tooth filled comfortably.
  • Oral Sedation – For this type of sedation, you’ll take a prescribed pill ahead of time so that you’re completely relaxed by the time your appointment begins. You’ll remain awake and able to talk to our staff, although some patients do become so relaxed that they doze off.

Cedar Dental Group provides beautiful tooth fillings in Kent. Call us today at 253-563-0315 if you think you might have a cavity and we’ll make you an appointment as soon as possible. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

Are tooth fillings safe?

Although no definitive evidence has been found that silver fillings containing mercury are harmful to human health, we prefer to err on the conservative side. That’s why we use completely safe and beautiful composite resin tooth fillings. These tooth-colored fillings are made up of tiny particles of glass and plastic, not metal.

When do tooth fillings need to be replaced?

After your dentist places your new filling, you should expect it to last for several years without any problems. Composite fillings last an average of about five to seven years, although other factors do come into play, including which tooth has the filling and the types of foods you eat.

Can tooth fillings come out?

While it’s not common, fillings can come out. Your teeth are exposed over time to plenty of chewing force and environmental factors like temperature extremes. This can cause fillings to loosen and sometimes fall out. If you lose a filling, try to put it back in place if you can, and call us ASAP. We’ll offer you a same-day appointment, if possible, to repair it.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Cedar Dental Group will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and is comfortable. We’ll first use a local anesthetic to ensure that the area around the tooth is completely numb. We also offer two relaxing forms of sedation if you need a little extra help getting comfortable.
