Reversing Cavities Naturally
Your natural teeth are better than fillings. Less drilling is always better option.
Did you know that teeth can heal themselves? Yes, they absolutely can! Tooth decay is simply a result from the loss of minerals of the tooth. This happens when a certain bacteria in the mouth puts out the acid as the by-product and melts the protective layer of tooth, creating softer teeth or holes (i.e. cavities)!
Tooth decay is a true infection and a disease condition that must be treated. But this does not always means dental fillings. Your teeth are alive just as other living organs in your body. The condition of environment that it is in, teeth can remineralize (healthy) or demineralize (not healthy).
At Delite Dental, we address the main source of the problem and come up with a treatment solution that will benefit you in the long term.
With our innovative approach, we treat dental conditions and make your teeth stronger and aid your teeth to heal on its own in the early phase of decay.
Safe Removal of Toxic Mercury Fillings
Mercury is a toxic and bio accumulative substance - and is a primary ingredient of the dental amalgam which is also known as "silver fillings". If you have any dental fillings that are silver in color, your body is exposed to mercury daily. This constant release of mercury in your body can cause negative affect to your brain, nervous system, kidneys, and an unborn child’s brain and health. In addition, mercury fillings over time weaken the tooth and may cause splitting of the tooth due to its inability to bind to tooth structure.
The removal process of mercury filling through traditional dentistry can be very toxic to your body because of the vaporized mercury particles released while drilling the filling by the dentist. As a biological/holistic dentist, Dr. Lee and Dr. Kim treat your dental condition with your whole body in mind. They are trained and certified with SMART through International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) to remove mercury fillings safely. In fact, Dr. Lee has removed all the mercury fillings placed during her childhood and replaced them with healthier material by Dr. Kim.
At Delite Dental, we use porcelain dental restorations as studies have shown that these are the most biologically compatible materials.
Ozone therapy at Delite Dental is one of the most exciting treatment options that we are proud to offer to our guests as a biological/holistic dentist. It is a revolution in modern dentistry in the U.S. to allow true re-mineralization of teeth and healing dental cavities naturally.

The all-ceramic implant, abutment and crown also offer a highly esthetic treatment in which a metal collar will never be visible above or through the gum line. Whether due to a metal-allergy, sensitivity, a desire for a natural material and/or purely for aesthetics, we provide zirconia metal-free implants as a treatment option to our patients.

What is Silver Diamine Fluoride?
No Needles. No Drilling. No Filling.
Silver Diamine Fluoride is a product that is painted on areas of active caries (cavities) for the purpose of stopping, or arresting the caries. Products like it have been used in Japan for 80 years and in parts of Europe for decades. We are excited to offer this treatment for cavities and hope that it will lead to a significant reduction in the number of cavities requiring treatment that includes drilling, filling and more invasive treatments.
How does Silver Diamine Fluoride work?
We will dry the teeth with air, and then apply the silver diamine fluoride. It will be left in place for one to two minutes. It is as simple as that! No numbing or drilling needed.
Silver Diamine Fluoride is not always a permanent solution. We will continue to monitor your cavities and depending on the rate of progression, we may recommend a reapplication. If the treatment has not sufficiently kept the cavities from progressing, it may be necessary for you to have more conventional treatment.
But don't worry! SDF can prevent cavity growth with a success rate of up to 80% when applied biannually.
Silver Diamine Fluoride is an FDA Approved, Safe Treatment
The FDA has approved silver diamine fluoride as a safe and effective treatment method to prevent cavites.
