I love going to Dr. Dharia! She is very thorough; she explains the procedure and everything in detail. I have never been to the dentist like her before because she genuinely takes time to explain everything on X-rays and take teeth pictures and show it! Great experience and personality! Highly recommend people out there to go with her! Also, the location has great views and that a plus!
Feel Confident in Your Oral Health With a Tooth Filling
You probably don’t like to think about getting a tooth filled. Even though dental technology has come a long way in recent years, with advances in local anesthetic as well as sedation options, it’s still something you’d usually rather avoid.
The team at Marina Landing Family Dentistry takes your comfort seriously. We’ll do all we can to make sure your tooth filling procedure is pain-free and goes smoothly. We’ll apply local anesthetic to the area around your tooth, plus you’re welcome to take us up on dental sedation. Choose inhaled laughing gas you breathe in through a small mask over your nose, or take an FDA-approved pill ahead of your appointment. Both options work great at relieving dental anxiety. You can relax in the chair while you get your tooth filled.
Depending on the tooth that needs repair, as well as your wants and needs, we’ll place one of two types of fillings:
- Traditional Amalgam Filling – This type of filling is silver in color and may be used on teeth that sustain a lot of force from biting and chewing.
- Composite Resin Filling – Composite fillings are tooth colored, so they blend in naturally with the rest of your smile. They also don’t require as much dental structure to be removed as metal fillings.
