Tooth-Colored Fillings in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

Tooth-colored fillings are a safer, more subtle restoration compared to silver fillings. Made of white composite resin, tooth-colored fillings come in different shades and are selected to match the color of your natural tooth. The result is a metal-free smile with fillings that are indistinguishable from your real teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings Are Gaining Popularity

Tooth-colored fillings have increased in popularity over the years. As white fillings have become more widely available and the possible dangers associated with silver or amalgam fillings have been exposed, more and more patients started having their cavities filled with attractive, tooth-colored fillings.

What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium. Composite fillings are durable and resistant to fracturing in small to mid-size restorations that need to withstand chewing pressure. With composite fillings, less of your tooth structure must be removed when preparing your tooth for the filling, which results in a smaller filling. Composites can also be bonded or secured with adhesive inside a cavity to make an even more conservative repair to your tooth.

A different type of composite resin is generally used for front and back teeth. The material used for front teeth has a higher shine, as opposed to the back teeth materials that are designed for strength.

One-Visit Crowns

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we use CEREC, a special machine that allows us to design, create, and place fillings and other restorations in a single visit.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville and Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD along with her tremendous staff. I have been to dozens of dentists over the years and hands down this has been my best experience and I loved my last dentist before I moved away. They are a wonderful combination of professional and caring. Great kindness and respect is shown to their patients. It is very welcoming environment. For those who dread the dental visit I recommend this office that works to create a calming and supportive atmosphere. The dental work/care was excellent from beginning to end and I look forward to my next visit.

My two sons, 8 and 10, are both receiving orthodontic treatment from Dr. Patti and I’ve been so happy with their progress. She is very thoughtful and thorough with her plans to give them both a healthier smile.

Dr. Patti and her incredible staff perfectly mix professionalism and brilliance with an ability to make patients feel right at home. I have been a patient for almost 10 years and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. From teeth cleanings to more invasive procedures, Dr. Patti's team is unmatched. Lately I have been treating for my sleep apnea. I can say without exaggeration that the device Dr. Patti prescribed and developed for me changed my life. I went from fitful nights of frequently-interrupted sleep all while snoring like a jackal, to sleeping through the night without making a sound. My wife may be happier at this development than I am. In short, whatever your dental/sleep needs, look no further than Aesthetic Dentistry.
