Dental Fillings in Forest Lake

For a Seamless Smile

Tooth decay is a common issue for many patients and the best way we can treat this decay is with white dental fillings.

Our team of oral health care professionals have been performing dental fillings for many years now and are able to treat patients of all ages with this procedure.

Composite Vs. Metal Fillings

Man smiling in dentist chairAt Lake Dental, we pride ourselves on being an amalgam-free practice. Gone are the days of metal fillings, as developments in dental procedures and materials now see white composite fillings providing outstanding results for patients.

Traditional amalgam or “silver” fillings do contain small amounts of mercury, plus their metallic appearance is anything but subtle. Additionally, more of the tooth’s natural structure needs to be removed to fit the filling, resulting in a much more complex and invasive procedure. Because the metal can contract and expand in different temperatures, this creates an even weaker tooth structure over time.

Our composite fillings, on the other hand, are 100% mercury-free, plus they are directly bonded to the tooth, resulting in a less invasive procedure. They’re available in a number of natural shades, allowing us to match the filling to the rest of your smile. No one will even know it’s there!

Do You Need a Dental Filling?

As with all health-related issues, it is vital to treat the concern before it develops into a more complex issue. Cavities can cause bacterial infection to spread even further into the tooth’s pulp (nerve), as well as to the surrounding teeth.

Warning signs of a cavity include:

  • Dark spots or noticeable holes on teeth
  • Sensitivity when eating or drinking
  • Being able to feel a rough spot on the tooth with your tongue
