Composite Fillings

Previously, cavities were filled with a mixture of metals, including silver and mercury, which made it common to see dark grey areas in someone's mouth. But in today's general dentistry practices, cavities are filled with composite fillings, made from resins that are matched to your tooth's color. These fillings are invisible in appearance.

Composite fillings provide an excellent seal on the affected area to prevent tooth decay. Our dental professionals opt to use composite fillings based on:
 • The size of the area that needs to be filled
 • The location of the affected area in the mouth (i.e., a tooth that is heavily relied on for chewing)
 • Allergies the patient might have
 • The preference of the patient regarding the use of metals in the mouth
 • Whether it is necessary cosmetically to have a tooth-colored filling

Tooth Extraction

At Tropical Smiles Dental in Kailua-Kona, we always make every attempt to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady. However, if a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. We only perform extractions in cases where teeth are poorly positioned or non-functional or show signs of advanced stages of periodontal disease.

Our commitment is to providing the highest quality general dentistry care for our patients, and we want to do the same for you. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact us today.

Cleaning and Consultation

Good oral hygiene keeps your teeth clean and your smile radiant. And it's also important for your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to various medical problems, like gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.

Dentists recommend you have your teeth cleaned professionally twice a year. A routine dental cleaning procedure at Tropical Smiles Dental takes 30 to 45 minutes and is rarely painful. During the procedure, our skilled professionals will remove all dental plaque and tartar in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.

We frequently perform a variety of general dentistry cleaning procedures at Tropical Smiles Dental, from scaling to whitening. So you know you will be in good hands with our experienced medical professionals in Kailua-Kona.
