Hello! Welcome to the Arbor Lakes Dental blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our St. Michael MN cosmetic dentistry practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.
My name is Dr. Jamie Sledd, DDS. I have been practicing family dentistry in the St. Michael MN area since 1992. Arbor Lakes Dental is a full-service dental office located at 12000 Elm Creek Blvd, Ste 230, Maple Grove MN. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the St. Michael MN area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.
When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a dental restoration is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.
If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible white fillings tooth colored. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our St. Michael MN cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.
Another reason some St. Michael MN clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.
If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at (763)494-4443 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our St. Michael MN cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.
Smile – it increases your face value!
