Have you started experiencing tooth sensitivity or pain? Notice visible holes in your teeth? It’s possible that you may developed a cavity! Left untreated, cavities—also known as tooth decay—can advance
But thankfully, At Gentling Smiles, we are happy to offer dental fillings for our patients as a solution to restore decayed teeth back to full health.
For many years, amalgam “silver” fillings were the only option when it came to treating tooth decay, but advances in modern dentistry has also allowed for the creation of tooth-colored composite fillings that are designed to blend in with your natural smile! Depending on the extent of your tooth decay and your needs, Dr. Gentling may recommend either an amalgam or composite resin filling.
Besides restoring a tooth to normal look and function, dental fillings can help halt the progression of tooth decay, strengthen the weakened tooth, and can last for many years with proper dental care.

Inspired by his cousins (both pediatric dentists in Eastern, WA) and others, Dr. Gentling chose to pursue a career in dentistry, leading him to graduate with honors from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS).
