Dentist Serving Westchester County, Peekskill, Yorktown, New York
A thorough dental hygiene and tooth cleaning routine remains the best way to avoid tooth decay. But even with your best efforts, you may still experience tooth decay, requiring dental fillings to avoid more invasive procedures.
For years, dental fillings have been made out of a mercury amalgam. These fillings are not only unsightly, they are susceptible to heat fluctuations in your mouth and can expand and contract, causing additional tooth damage or falling out completely. With modern advancements in both cosmetic and general dentistry a new, aesthetically pleasing and functionally superior option is now available.
Dental Fillings at Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake
At our Westchester, New York area office, our Peekskill dentists offer several safe, secure options for treating tooth decay. Depending on the unique needs of your mouth, we may suggest solutions including:
- Composite fillings
- Porcelain fillings
- Porcelain inlays and onlays
- Zirconia fillings
- Opalite fillings
- Laminate reinforced fillings
With all of these procedures, the impact to your natural tooth is greatly reduced. In addition, these options are actually bonded to your tooth. This serves the dual purpose of restoring your tooth to its natural strength and function, while making the risk of additional damage or falling out a thing of the past. Better still, they can all be colored to match your adjacent teeth, providing a seamless, beautiful final appearance.
Due to the enhanced structural and aesthetic benefits of these dental fillings, George Sepiashvili, DDS and Dr. Wanda Mejia may recommend that patients who have metal amalgam fillings replace them with one of these options. During your annual checkup, we will discuss your options with you, and help you determine what restorations will best meet your needs.
