Creating smiles in the Silver Lake area for over 25 years
GENERAL DENTISTRY TREATMENTS AND PROCEDURES
Routine dental care is anything but ordinary at Silver Lake Family Dental, where we create a comprehensive plan for your dental fillings and restoration. For some patients, coming in for dental treatment can create feelings of anxiety, and our team understands how important it is to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
If you’re in need of dental restoration, our state-of-the-art equipment will allow you to undergo the latest treatment methods. Dental visits should be efficient, comprehensive, and comfortable, and Silver Lake Family Dental delivers on all of these points every time you visit.
Not only do we want you to feel good during your appointment, but we want you to look good for years after! Our staff uses BPA free composite fillings that match the color of your teeth, so no one will be able to detect where you’ve had a restoration or filling. By using a composite filling we are also able to preserve more of your healthy tooth, ensuring the integrity of your oral care.
While nearly everyone can benefit from a dental sealant, at Silver Lake Family Dental we strongly recommend this quick and easy procedure for children 6 years and older. As their first molars begin to erupt, it’s essential to protect the strength and health of their teeth. Since our molars are harder to reach, they have a tendency to harbor cavity causing food and bacteria.
The process of applying sealants is simple enough for even a young child to sit through, as we place a gel onto each dry tooth to help prepare the surface. Then, a clear coat of sealant is bonded to each molar, creating a protective barrier. Over time, sealants do wear off, so our team recommends that children receive them every few years.
Some dental offices see their patients as just another appointment, but at our office you’re a unique individual whose oral care deserves the highest level of attention both in and out of our exam chair. During your visit, you can rest assured that we’ll complete a comprehensive evaluation of your current oral health and will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Our team of qualified doctors use digital xrays to detect any cavities and get an in-depth look at the health of your mouth. This system of accurate documentation allows us to track any changes over time, ensuring our care is preventative rather than reactive.
Examinations are incredibly thorough at Silver Lake Family Dental, with compassionate staff members who take the time to answer all of your questions. We’ll also discuss home care with you as well to make sure you have the tools and information you need to keep your smile healthy for years to come!
It’s this multi-pronged approach that puts our office head and shoulders above the rest in the Silver Lake area. Visit us today to see what quality and affordable care is all about!

Often times we work with patients whose teeth are healthy and strong, yet they don’t quite have the appearance they would like. Using a safe procedure called dental bonding, we can transform your smile in a variety of ways.
Some of the reasons you might opt for dental bonding include:
- Changing the shape or length of the teeth
- Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Filling cavities or covering discoloration
- Protection of the root when one’s gums have receded
The process of dental bonding is straightforward, where a tooth colored composite is placed on the tooth and cures with the use of a specific light source. This resin is strong and smooth, with the ability to last for decades and help keep your smile looking great.
Silver Lake Family Dental’s team of expert doctors not only stress the importance of a comfortable atmosphere each time you visit, but truly do care about the health of your mouth. Many patients see us with periodontal issues and aren’t aware of how they can treat and prevent these plaguing mouth problems.
Periodontal disease typically comes in the form of gingivitis, also called gum disease, and periodontitis. Both conditions include the inflammation of one’s gums and can cause bleeding, pain, and if severe enough can affect your teeth.
When a periodontal issue is present, we work with our patients to educate them about their condition and create a plan of treatment for helping the gums get back to a healthier state. Each visit with us might include a different kind of treatment that targets the various symptoms you’re experiencing, and ongoing maintenance is crucial for success.
If you’re experiencing painful or unusual gum symptoms, contact us today to learn more about our periodontal care and what options might be right for you.
