For many years now, silver fillings have been used to restore decayed teeth. Over time, teeth tend to crack as a result of the expansion and contraction of the silver when exposed to the hot and cold liquids we drink. These fractures start off small and are difficult to detect. Eventually, the fractures go deeper and cause temperature and pressure sensitivity when biting, or cause large portions of the tooth to break off. In many instances, a root canal procedure becomes necessary to resolve the symptoms. Additionally, it becomes more difficult and costly to restore the tooth.

A more preventative approach is to replace silver fillings with new composite fillings or porcelain-bonded restorations before cracking occurs. This usually prevents further deterioration of the tooth. Dental composites chemically adhere to the tooth and bind it together restoring strength and integrity. Composites are typically as strong as the original tooth and can be formulated to match your tooth color. You’ll be pleased with how natural they feel alongside your original teeth.

I have had a very positive experience with Eleven Eleven Dental. I am visiting PA and had a dental emergency. They fit me into their schedule and the entire staff was so nice to me. Dr. Carlile was so nice and professional. He made me feel so comfortable and confident in him. I’m so happy I found them.

1111 Dental has always given me and my family wonderful dental services. I have enjoyed getting to know new faces, Chelsea the Hygenist n particular! Such a sweetheart who made sure I was comfortable during my recent cleaning. Especially being able to depend on Cathy of the front office for her wonderful warm welcome each visit, and her smile along with asking about my little grands. Such personal service ~ much appreciated!!! ❤️

The staff at eleven eleven dental are all super friendly and helpful. I've had a lot of dental work done and Dr. Carlile is so patient and explains everything he's going to be doing. I've been to other dentist in town but I wont go anywhere else after coming here.

We have been coming here for 2 years now and we absolutely love it! There is a train track play area for little kids, however wait time is never that long. Also all the rooms are uniquely decorated with lots of fun things to look at. I have an 18 month old, 3 year old, and 6 year old, and all of them have done great here and are treated well. We have had experience with lots of the dental assistants/hygienists and they all have done a great job cleaning, are friendly, and knowledgeable, including the two dentists. They are also very easy to work with regarding insurance/ billing/ making appointments. The location is pretty stellar too-

I had the most wonderful experience at Eleven Eleven Dental. Dr. Carlile and his staff were incredibly friendly, gentle and thorough. They made what is usually an unpleasant appointment, a rather enjoyable one. Can't thank them enough for their compassion and humor. And I have to mention the stunning view of the Strait - what a treat! Happy to have found such a great dental office.

Dental Hygienist, Chelsea, is amazing! I have receding gums and nerve sensitivity and she is very understanding and makes cleanings as painless as possible. I don’t dread getting my teeth cleaned anymore! Dr. Carlisle is also great and gentle and explains everything very thoroughly.

Dentist Carlile is amazing. I appreciate how honest he is and how he tries to go the least invasive route as possible. It is rare to find such a great dentist, who performs high quality work and doesn't try to steal your dollars. I also appreciate how quick the office is to get you quickly on the schedule in reasonable time. This is the first dental office I have found, true professional and honest work. I have had two cavities fixed, cleanings and will now be getting invisalign. All appointments have been higher than standard. I highly recommend Carlile and his staff!
