A filling is needed when there is decay present in the tooth. With a
filling, the portion of the tooth that has been compromised with decay is removed. Generally, the earlier the cavity is detected, the smaller the restoration will need to be. Once the decay has been removed, a composite-based resin is placed to restore the stability of the tooth. We are a mercury/amalgam-free office, which means we do not place silver fillings. Time and research have shown that an amalgam filling will expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures, causing the tooth to crack and/or break over time. We choose to use a tooth colored filling that more accurately resembles the material of your real tooth. It is more aesthetically pleasing and will cause you less trouble in the future.
If you currently have silver fillings, you’re not stuck with them! We can easily remove a silver filling and put a tooth colored CEREC restoration in its place. If you think this treatment may be for you, please call and schedule a consultation or speak with your hygienist at your next visit.

I was looking for a dentist that didn’t make my family and I feel like we were just a check on a list. I made the decision to switch less than a year ago and we absolutely love it! I have a large family (4 kiddos) and I love that they work to get us scheduled at the same time so I don’t have to make multiple trips! Everyone makes us feel welcomed and actually take time to talk to us. Even my 5 year old LOVES the dentist!!! I would recommend to anyone!!
