If your teeth are chipped, cracked, damaged by tooth decay or wear, they may need fillings. Your dentist may also find cavities that you may not see in the mirror. Regular dental visits allow the dentist to find small problems before they become large ones, saving you time, money and pain. A dental filling strengthens the tooth, however if tooth decay is not repaired at its early stages, it will worsen and additional or alternative dental treatments may be necessary.
Using advanced digital imaging with digital xrays and intra oral cameras your dentist will be able to show you the cavities you may not see or feel. At Sunrise Dental of Kent we specialize in painless dental fillings. We use premium composite resin fillings and are a mercury free practice. Because resin mimics the appearance of natural teeth, these fillings blend right in. They’re also known as “white fillings” or “tooth-colored fillings.”
