A date with your dentist to fill a painful cavity is not the most anticipated mark on your calendar this summer. Beach trips, sailing, vacations, and barbeques are probably more your style, but you can only fully enjoy those summer experiences with strong, healthy, pain-free teeth. Dentists use fillings to treat cavities, prevent the further decay of your enamel, and ease the pain associated with deep cavities. Some patients may be hesitant to receive fillings because of the unnatural, silver fillings that once marred teeth when cavity treatment became necessary. Now at SmilesNY, you can have your cavity treated with porcelain fillings in New York City, keeping your smile bright and natural-looking as well as healthy.
Silver-colored mercury fillings that fill the grooves in teeth are noticeable and darken a person’s smile. In addition to these cosmetic disadvantages, mercury is a known biologic and environmental toxin. Although mercury fillings are approved by the American Dental Association as a safe and acceptable dental treatment, the dentists at SmilesNY protect their health and the health of their patients by only offering porcelain fillings in NY, porcelain-covered gold restorations, composite resin fillings, cast gold restorations, and bonded porcelain restorations.
The beautiful, tooth-colored, porcelain fillings we use to treat your cavities can even be color-matched to blend perfectly with the natural color of the surrounding tooth! In addition to their cosmetic benefits, porcelain fillings are comprised of a long-lasting, highly durable ceramic material, even more durable than your natural enamel. Using porcelain fillings not only looks great, but also strengthens your tooth. Cavities may put a temporary crimp in your summer schedule, but the porcelain fillings offered at SmilesNY offer a silver lining to cavity treatment that has nothing to do with mercury!
Fillings are necessary to prevent further tooth decay and enamel damage, but not everyone has to know about your cavity. Smile your brightest and whitest this summer by receiving porcelain fillings in NYC! Dr. Chase, Dr. Roth, Dr. Jackier, Dr. Loshak, and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about porcelain fillings in New York or mercury free dentistry.
