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.
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.
Dental fillings protect teeth from further damage while restoring oral health. Most insurance plans cover at least a portion of the cost of dental fillings.
