Tooth-Colored Fillings

One of the great benefits that we have today is composite fillings or so called white fillings. In the past, we used amalgam or silver fillings they were called. Today with the composite fillings, you are bonded to the tooth, so they are much stronger where you are actually bonding the structure together and holding the tooth together, where the old silver fillings basically were retentive mechanically and what would happen a lot of times with the old silver type of fillings is that they would actually crack the teeth. Today’s bonded fillings, you are actually strengthening the tooth. That in conjunction with onlays and inlays, which are made from composite white material but are made in a laboratory, which are stronger for cases where more forces are used on the biting surfaces and we can replace any filling in your mouth with a composite filling or inlay.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week. Their flexibility in scheduling and acceptance of various insurances make it hassle-free. I’ve been a loyal client for years, personally attended to by Dr. Carmen. She’s not only super nice but also patiently listens, possesses extensive knowledge, and most importantly, operates with utmost integrity – you can trust them without a doubt.
