Enjoy Metal-Free Fillings That Look Natural & Safely Remove Metal Fillings

We want our community to be healthy. That’s why we take a biomimetic approach and use only metal-free dental fillings to repair cavities and restore your tooth’s function. With these fillings you can:

  • Rest easy knowing your restorations are conservative, safe, and biocompatible
  • Avoid long-term health risks associated with mercury fillings
  • Not worry about feeling embarrassed about metal fillings when talking, laughing, or eating in public

Our office is able to remove your old silver amalgam fillings so you don’t have to worry about any adverse effects. Dr. Porter is certified by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) in the SMART protocol for removing amalgam fillings. Our Synergy Dental team will safely remove your old fillings and replace them with biocompatible, safe, tooth-colored composite fillings.

We also follow the ReCODE Protocol program to address any dental health risk factors that put you at risk for Alzheimer’s. By removing your metal or mercury fillings, you are reducing your risk for this disease.

Inlays & Onlays Provide Extensive Protection

If you’re suffering from extensive dental damage that a normal filling can’t repair, we may recommend using an inlay or onlay to address the issue. Sometimes referred to as partial crowns, these beautiful restorations provide a more robust repair. Plus, you avoid the need to have an entire crown made:

  • Inlays are custom-made porcelain fillings that can fit between the cusps (tips) of your tooth.
  • Onlays act the same, except they extend onto the sides of your damaged tooth as well.

Our Sturgis, SD tooth fillings will make your smile beautiful and your bite pain-free. Call Synergy Dental Center today at 605 702 2533 for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

How long do tooth fillings last?

While no filling is designed to last a lifetime, you can expect to receive several years of trouble-free service from our composite resin fillings. On average, they will last at least five to seven years before needing replacement. You may get an even longer life out of your fillings – 10 years or more with no problems, depending on your oral care habits and the types of foods you eat.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Synergy Dental Center will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and is comfortable. We’ll first use a local anesthetic to ensure the area around the tooth is completely numb. We also offer three relaxing forms of sedation if you need a little extra help getting comfortable.

How much does a tooth filling cost?

Without examining your mouth, it is difficult to give you an estimate on your tooth repair. There may be underlying problems you don’t know about that could affect your treatment and the estimated cost. That’s why we recommend you visit us for an initial consultation and exam so that we can give you an accurate estimate for your treatment.
