Dental Fillings

Tooth-colored dental fillings replace decayed tissue to resolve dental cavities and restore your oral health. This restorative treatment is one of the most commonly performed at the dental practice of Dr. Julie Liberman in Great Neck, NY. Beyond its restorative uses, many of our patients seek tooth-colored dental fillings as a more cosmetically pleasing replacement for old silver amalgam fillings. Dr. Liberman has more than 25 years of dental experience and has helped patients throughout the area experience the many benefits of excellent oral health.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings offer a wide range of restorative benefits. Individuals who have tooth-colored fillings placed at our dental practice can benefit from:

  • Restored oral health: Dental fillings restore your tooth structure following cavity treatment or after your tooth has been damaged. 
  • Reduced sensitivity: Cavities can cause your teeth to become hypersensitive to pressure and hot and cold temperatures. Dental fillings can replace decayed tissue and minimize sensitivity.
  •  Natural-looking results: Before your dental fillings are placed at our Great Neck dental practice, Dr. Liberman will carefully color-match the resin to your smile. Composite resin matches the shine and luster of enamel, meaning that your restoration will be virtually unnoticeable.
  • Preventative treatment: Dental fillings stop decay and protect your tooth from further damage. Undergoing this straightforward treatment can save you time and money down the road.

Dental fillings are also very affordable. Many dental health plans cover at least a portion of the costs associated with placing fillings.

When Are Dental Fillings Needed?

If you have a cavity treatment scheduled at our Great Neck dental practice, you will require dental fillings to replace the decayed tissue. In other cases, patients with otherwise healthy teeth want tooth-colored dental fillings as a replacement for dark-colored silver amalgam fillings. Often, this is performed for cosmetic reasons, although some patients wish to replace silver fillings because they feel uncomfortable about the trace amounts of mercury these fillings contain. However, it is important to understand that the American Dental Association and other leaders in the medical field have determined that amalgam fillings are safe

How Are Dental Fillings Placed?

Before your fillings can be placed, the decayed portion of your tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. Once the tooth is ready to receive fillings, Dr. Liberman will artfully place composite resin to restore strength and structure to your tooth. The composite resin is then hardened using a special light. Once hardened, Dr. Liberman can make adjustments to ensure that the fillings do not interfere with your bite. Your tooth may be sensitive for a few days after the filling is in place.
