COVID-19 Update
In the wake of the unprecedented COVID19 pandemic and the safety of our staff and patients, Dr. Lentz closed our office temporarily at the end of last week, 20th March, 2020.
Our voicemail has been updated to instruct patients with dental emergencies to follow the prompts to reach Dr. Lentz. This web notice is to inform patients that state and federal mandates recommend we close our office until we can equip ourselves with proper protective equipment. That equipment is not yet available because it is being directed to front line emergency workers in hospitals handling the outbreak. At this time, we are working closely with specialists to treat emergency dental conditions that are resulting in pain, swelling and fever.
State wide - No restorative treatment will be rendered at this time. Just emergency treatment (i.e. root canals and extractions) by our specialists.
Think of Dr. Lentz as a quarterback directing emergency traffic to the proper specialists. Please feel free to call and leave a message for emergency: 678-802-1209. Dr. Lentz will call back as soon as possible to trouble shoot your specific concern. We are monitoring daily, awaiting proper protective equipment orders to arrive, and will update our Lanier Valley Dentistry Family with any changes.

Filing Options That Are Not as Easy to See


Posted on 2/29/2020 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Filing Options That Are Not as Easy to SeeFillings are a mainstay of dental practice. Most people with cavities opt for dental fillings which are great and serve their purpose. The most common question asked in our offices on dental fillings is whether or not they can be seen.

Seen in the sense that they stand out from the rest of the tooth in terms of color. This is largely driven by the fact that the filling option of choice for a long time was the silver colored filler which being silver would stand out from the rest of the tooth material. Over the years, however, filling substitutes have been made which blend in with the tooth color.

Composite Fillings


These are the most commonly used filings in dental offices all over the world. They are simple to use and do not require any drilling. Making them ideal for patients who are afraid of dental procedures. Composite fillings come in different shades which allows us to pick one that blends right in with the color of your teeth.

Glass Ionomers


These fillings are made from acrylic acids and fine glass powders. The great thing about them is that they can be painted to blend in with the color of the teeth. They are also made in a way that allows them to release small amounts of fluoride which serves to prevent tooth decay.

Ceramic


This is the most ideal filling because it looks and feels just like ordinary teeth. It is also very durable and does not break easily.

Porcelain


Porcelain crowns are good for veneers due to their ability to be easily formed into shells. They also closely match the teeth color. The only disadvantage of porcelain is that it requires numerous visits to our office before it is complete. All these are but a few of the filling options available for you in our offices. You can always call us if you have questions about fillings.
