Kirkland, WA dentist offers tooth-colored composite dental fillings

Tooth-colored Composite Dental Fillings in Kirkland Wa Area

Dental fillings are a common restorative treatment used for patients who have cavities and need to address them before they become worse. Dental fillings used in other Kirkland, WA area dental practices are often dark and made with materials such as silver amalgam. However, Dr. Ann Kelley and her team at Kingsgate Dental are pleased to provide an alternative solution such as composite resin fillings, or “tooth-colored” fillings.

What is a dental filling?

When cavities occur, they need to be addressed as soon as possible before they become a much bigger problem down the road. With early detection and diagnosis, patients can seek treatment with the use of dental fillings. Dental fillings fill the hole that develops in the tooth and keeps the decay from spreading. Other practices use silver amalgam fillings, which are fabricated with approximately 50% mercury. Mercury is toxic to the human body. This is why Dr. Ann Kelley of Kirkland, WA encourages patients to discuss the benefits of composite resin fillings as an alternative. Composite resin dental fillings are:

  • Tooth-colored
  • Fast
  • Placed in one appointment
  • Long-lasting
  • Effective
  • Affordable

Who needs a dental filling?

Any patient with decay might benefit from the placement of a dental filling. Dental fillings are utilized to keep decay from getting deeper or spreading across the natural tooth enamel. This reduces permanent damage to the tooth and tooth structure. Patients are evaluated at our facility by our dental team to determine if an area of decay will benefit from a dental filling. In some situations, patients may have the dental filling placed along with a dental crown, which protects the tooth when larger decay exists. The dental crown offers an extra layer of protection against damage that could significantly impact the teeth.

Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
