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 Proud to Smile Dentistry, we use CEREC, a special machine that allows us to design, create, and place fillings and other restorations in a single visit.

Replacing Metal Fillings

Patients are not only opting for tooth-colored fillings when they have cavities. Many are also choosing to remove old silver fillings and replace them with composite resins. By doing this, you can enhance the appearance of your smile by removing unappealing metal fillings. This is an easy way to make a major difference to the look of your smile.

If you are interested in removing an old metal filling or if you have a cavity and would like it filled with a safe, tooth-colored material, please call (908) 888-9858 or contact Proud to Smile Dentistry online. Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb and her team can help free your mouth of unsightly metal fillings or repair new cavities with undetectable with tooth-colored fillings.

After a thorough, painfree cleaning by the dental hygienist (Karima), Dr. Patti repaired a molar for me. The injection and filling were painless and she explained everything throughout the process. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Best ever dental experience for someone with dental anxiety.The office very recently underwent renovation and it’s gorgeous.
