Dental Fillings in Kennebunk

woman fun smileDespite our best efforts, cavities can crop up. This common dental issue is caused by bacteria that feed on sugars and produce acid, which erodes tooth enamel. If left untreated, cavities can lead to toothaches, infections, and even tooth loss. Fillings offer a reliable solution to this problem, restoring the integrity of your teeth and preventing further decay.

At Starboard Dental, we offer composite fillings that are attractive and affordable, and they tend to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened by decay. In our practice, we often suggest these “white” fillings as they’re nearly indistinguishable from your natural tooth.

What to Expect

We understand that getting a filling can be stressful for some patients. That’s why Dr. Kerbaugh will take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you have before starting. Here’s what you can expect next when getting a filling at our practice:

  • Assessment: Dr. Kerbaugh will examine your teeth to determine the extent of the decay.
  • Preparation: We remove the decayed portion of the tooth using a dental drill.
  • Filling Placement: We fill the cavity with a durable, tooth-colored material.
  • Polishing: We polish the filling to ensure a smooth, natural-looking finish that blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.
