Dental Fillings In Kennewick & Richland

If you have a minor-to-moderate cavity, a dental filling is the best way to repair and restore your tooth. During treatment, one of our dentists will remove infected and damaged enamel, and fill the space to ensure that the progress of decay is halted permanently. At Midtown Dental, we offer both composite and amalgam fillings. If you have a toothache, give us a call to schedule an appointment to see whether you need a filling!

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings can be matched perfectly to the color of your teeth, which gives patients aesthetically pleasing results. Composite fillings also usually require the removal of less natural enamel than amalgam fillings, so you can keep more of your tooth intact. During your consultation, our dentists will go over your options and assess your damaged tooth to determine whether composite fillings are right for you.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are made from a blend of metals that usually includes durable silver and tiny. This material is extremely strong and pliable, and has been used successfully to fill cavities for decades. Amalgam fillings are affordable and they are often covered by dental insurance plans.

Signs That You Might Need A Filling

If you have a cavity in one of your teeth, you will most likely need a filling from Midtown Dental. Signs that you may have a cavity include tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, uncomfortable pressure when chewing, and dark spots forming on your tooth. Other signs include throbbing or sharp pain around the tooth, or an area of your tooth that feels rough, chipped or damaged. Notice any of these signs? Call us today to schedule an appointment!

Do Fillings Hurt?

No! With powerful numbing agents and sedation available for every patient, we offer pain-free fillings at Midtown Dental. We make sure that your mouth is completely numb throughout the procedure and our conservative approach to dentistry means that we will remove the least possible amount of your natural enamel. If you need a filling, you’re in good hands at Midtown Dental!

How Long Do Fillings Last?

This depends on the type of filling you choose. As a rule, you can expect composite fillings to last about 7-10 years, though proper oral care can extend this lifespan. Amalgam fillings, on the other hand, usually last 10-15+ years. Proper oral care is critical to ensure that your fillings last as long as possible. Brush twice a day for two minutes and floss once per day, and see your dentist at Midtown Dental for a check-up every six months.
