Sophisticated Treatments such as Botox in Kent
Yes we know we offer lots of different treatments including Botox in Kent, and full arch restorations using dental implants. But we also offer lots of other restorative dental treatments including things as basic as dental fillings.
Dental fillings are extremely important in helping to preserve teeth that have undergone some sort of trauma, or which have lost structure due to tooth decay. The filling can replace the lost tooth structure, restoring the tooth to full function, but it also has a protective effect. The filling is designed to seal up the exposed parts of the tooth protecting it from bacterial attack that could lead to it becoming infected or even more decayed. Without dental fillings a tooth could just continue to decay and would eventually become severely infected, and may even require root canal therapy. In a worst-case the tooth may need extraction.
We Offer Several Different Types of Fillings
We do offer several different types of fillings, but most people will opt for tooth coloured composite resin fillings. These are designed to closely match the rest of your tooth, and a skilled dentist in Kent can even use several different colours of resin that is gradually applied to the tooth in small increments creating a custom made and beautiful filling that will look exactly like your natural tooth or even a little better. Composite resin is suitable for replacing quite large areas of tooth decay as it is really pretty strong. However there might be occasions where too much tooth material has been lost to place a conventional filling.
In this case Dr Rik Trivedi may suggest you have a CEREC filling, something that may also be called an inlay or onlay. An inlay is used to replace the central portion of a back tooth, whereas an onlay will replace this portion plus one or more of the tooth cusps. The cusps are the points of the tooth that are located on the inner and outer edges and which stick up more than the central part of the tooth.
CEREC fillings are quite different from normal fillings as they are constructed from a single block of porcelain material. The porcelain is milled in a special machine at Parrock Street Dental and Implant Centre. This is done using computerised technology so the final result is a precision made filling that will closely match your natural tooth and which is very strong.

“I came to see Rik as I was really unhappy with my smile, I was missing teeth and also had broken teeth which was really affecting my chewing and confidence. I had dental implant treatment and would really recommend
“ The work I’ve had done has literally changed my life. I used to be very nervous but I love coming here. It was very comfortable and easy treatment coming from someone like me who was a phobic. Thank- you Rik and the team at Parrock Dental ”
I came to see Rik to have dental implants, I also needed a bone graft procedure all of which I was very nervous about. Rik was very sincere. I had a bone graft, dental implants and veneers. I am 100% happy with the result and would sincerely recommend Rik to everyone!
“I came here as my son recommended Parrock Dental, and my teeth were badly worn at the front and I needed dental implants at the rear to replace missing teeth. Overall I’ve been very please, it’s given me a lot more confidence with my smile, and chewing is now really good.”
