No Drills Please! Marietta, GA

No Drills Please!

You’ve just been told the devastating news. You have a cavity. Now all you can think about is that painful shot of Novocain and the sound of that loud drill digging into your tooth. Until now, you are preparing yourself for an accurate cavity filling experience from your dentist. Fortunately, there is a treatment option that involves no drilling and no injections. The ICON treatment of small cavities is a revolutionary and highly effective approach to not only taking care of your cavity but saving your healthy tooth structure as well. Gilreath Family Dentistry is among the few dental practices that offer this conservative no drill restoration.

The ICON technique was developed in Europe and is FDA approved. It works by infiltrating resin into small “incipient” decay lesions in your tooth. This addresses decay before it grows into a large cavity that would demand those awful drills and a full blown filling. Many dentists still use the “watch and wait” approach to cavities. It is important to realize there are conservative options in dentistry for taking care of your cavities.

Drills are not only unpleasant for the patient, but they can actually harm your tooth structure. However, the ICON approach is not just minimally invasive, it is micro-invasive. It fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without destructive drilling or painful shots. And if you needed yet another reason to seek out this revolutionary technology when you have a cavity, the ICON can be done in just minutes.

There you have it. You save yourself unnecessary pain, harmful drilling, and precious time when you seek an ICON dental provider such as Gilreath Family Dentistry. Plus, you are free to enjoy the rest of your day after you leave. You can go have lunch or meet with a client without that frustrating and lingering numbness in your mouth.

Are you taking advantage of the latest technology in tooth restoration?

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
