At Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, we understand the importance of both the health and aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Brian Hirschfield offers advanced tooth-colored dental fillings that not only restore your oral health but also blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Utilizing a dental laser for maximum comfort and precision, we ensure that your cavity treatment enhances your smile without compromising its appearance.

Tooth-colored fillings, made from composite resin, offer significant benefits over traditional silver amalgam fillings:

  • Aesthetic Match: Dr. Hirschfield custom matches the composite resin to your teeth, ensuring a natural look.
  • Strong Bonding: Composite materials bond chemically with the tooth structure, providing a strong, stable restoration.
  • Conservative Treatment: Less tooth structure needs to be removed compared to amalgam fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Stable Under Temperature Changes: Unlike amalgam, composite fillings expand and contract similarly to natural dental tissue, reducing the risk of cracks.
  • Mercury-Free: Free from mercury, composite fillings offer a safer, non-toxic alternative for patients concerned about the potential health risks associated with traditional fillings.

What to Expect During Your Filling Procedure

The process begins with Dr. Hirschfield administering a local anesthetic to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. For patients with dental anxiety, sedation options are available to make the experience stress-free. Using a dental laser, Dr. Hirschfield gently removes decay and prepares the tooth. The cavity is then filled in layers, with each layer being hardened with a special curing light. After filling, excess material is trimmed, and the filling is polished to blend perfectly with your tooth, making adjustments as necessary to ensure a comfortable bite.
