There are very few people who can say that they have never had a cavity. Most of the rest of us will face tooth decay at some point that requires a filling to repair.
At Kemahli Dental, we understand how important it is for our patients to feel confident about the health and appearance of their smiles. That’s why every dental treatment we provide, including fillings, improve your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile.
Modern Tooth-Colored Fillings
We use tooth-colored fillings at our Bellevue dental office because of their durability and the fact that they allow us to preserve more healthy tooth structure. These fillings are also cosmetically pleasing because the composite material they’re made of mimics the translucency of tooth enamel. When we match the white shade of the material to your tooth, the result is a seamless cavity repair.
Prompt Cavity Treatment for Better Oral Health
In dentistry, it’s always best to address problems sooner rather than later. Filling a tiny cavity as soon as Dr. Kemahli detects it on an x-ray or during a visual exam, almost always results in better outcomes, less costly treatment, and less discomfort for you.
We know that there are probably other places you’d rather be than sitting in a dental chair getting a tooth filled. Everything we do and every interaction we have with you is meant to ensure that your time with us is stress-free, comfortable, and efficient.
Getting a Tooth-Colored Filling in Bellevue, WA
If we find a cavity during a dental exam, don’t worry that we will give you a lecture about your oral habits. The most important thing is that you are here now, and we will provide judgment-free treatment to help you achieve your healthiest smile.
Your comfort during your procedure is of the utmost importance to us, so the first step is for our general dentist to gently numb the tooth he’s treating. Before we proceed, we will ensure that you don’t feel any pain and that you remain comfortable throughout your procedure.
Dr. Kemahli then expertly removes the tooth decayed and applies a bonding agent to create a tight seal between it and the filling. The next step is to place the filling material in the cavity while it’s a moldable consistency and shape it so that it perfectly matches the contours of your tooth.
When Dr. Kemahli is happy with the appearance of the filling, he sets the material using a curing light.
