Dental Fillings


Click here for high-res version

We are a mercury-free practice. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) create fillings that are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.


Silver fillings have many drawbacks. The edges of the silver filling can wear down, become weak or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and lets cavities get started once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can split.

Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury. They can corrode, leak and cause stains on your teeth and gums.

Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with Tooth-Colored Restorations.

There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin onlays are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.

Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums!

The result is a beautiful smile!


You can have your silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored restorations in one easy appointment.

Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!

Patient Review by Kristin B

I had a filling repaired by Dr. Nate and it was completely pain free. Dr. Nate was very gentle and made sure I was relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. He even took the time to refine the edges of my front teeth from previous work elsewhere. I highly recommend Dr. Nate and his staff!

Patient Review by Dmitry K

Their office is very nice and clean and the staff are amazing. The doctor and his staff are very kind, professional, and honest which is difficult to find these days. My family and I have all switched over to this clinic for our dental needs and would recommend this office to anyone else looking for quality dental work. We are always thankful for the work they do!

Patient Review by Tim H

I went in for an initial examination after not seeing a dentist for over 4 years. My examination was very thorough and all dental issues were explained in non-clinical terms that I could understand. Dr. Johnson took the time to explain all my issues, the procedures that he recommends and the timing for each procedure in order of importance. He also thoroughly answered all of my questions and did not leave my side until I was satisfied and understood all of my conditions and options. The office staff was very friendly and inviting and helped me understand my insurance benefits so I could make an informed decision for my dental care. I never felt pressured to do anything that I was not comfortable with and I really appreciated the transparency of all the current and possible future charges. I had a fantastic experience and feel that I am in good hands.

Patient Review by Katrina k

I was very impressed with Dr. Johnson showing me the before, during and after pictures of my teeth that had fillings, it was really nice to see exactly what was being done in my mouth. The dental assistant Lacie was also very good and comforting. I will always be coming here for future dental needs.

Patient Review by Katie S

Best dental office I have been to, I like how everything is explained and you are made to feel comfortable about being there. I’ve been to some awful dentist who left my mouth hurting for months after simple procedures. My mouth was not and is not sore after Friday’s procedures.

Patient Review by Harold O

Too ask me, for my experiences within the Dental Excellence facilities would be somewhat one sided; after all, my family and me have been under the care of both Dr. Johnson’s for over fifty years. One may ask are you going to stay or are you still looking for a Dentist. However, each and every time I see the staff and Doctor’s I am treated with respect and the best dental care available at any location. The feeling of being apricating as a patient and the conciseness of receiving state of the art care for all my family. It really doesn’t come any better than this care facilities.
