Learn more about our tooth-colored white fillings, also known as composite or amalgam-free fillings. At Brooklyn Heights Dental, white fillings are the ideal alternative for patients who need their broken teeth fixed while preserving a natural appearance.
Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
While metal fillings are effective and are a great option for some patients, they are less than ideal for most. For the most youthful and natural look, you simply can’t beat tooth-colored (composite) fillings. If you already have metal fillings, Dr. Stanislaus can replace them with fillings that match your teeth and seamlessly blend into your smile, restoring function while giving you the natural look you deserve. With our tooth-colored fillings, smile makeover patients across New York City can enjoy smiles that are bright, white, and healthy.
Composite fillings are extremely safe and harden much quicker than traditional metal fillings. Additionally, our white fillings don’t contain the mercury that metal fillings do. While amalgam fillings have been found to be completely safe by the American Dental Association, we understand that many patients would rather avoid any risk of mercury exposure. The debate on the safety of metal fillings is ongoing, and many of our Brooklyn patients prefer to play it safe by replacing old metal fillings with new, tooth-colored white fillings.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are tooth-colored fillings safe?
Yes! Tooth-colored fillings are completely safe and a great option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. They’re made of a composite material that’s hardened with a curing light, also known as ultraviolet light. Tooth-colored fillings are safe, effective, and long-lasting, blending in seamlessly with your smile to protect your long-term oral health.
Can I replace my silver filling with a composite filling?
Yes! In most cases, our Brooklyn Heights cosmetic dentist can switch out your old, silver fillings for new, composite fillings. This cosmetic restoration provides the strength and longevity of amalgam (silver) fillings while seamlessly blending in with your natural teeth. During your appointment, Dr. Stanislaus will examine your old fillings and determine if it’s a safe option to replace them with tooth-colored fillings.
