Frequently used to address tooth decay and cavities, dental fillings are one of the most common of dental treatments-and one that most people will experience at some point in their lives. Dental fillings can also be used for repairing tooth damage such as cracks or chips to restore the integrity of the tooth and prevent further deterioration.
Dr. Levey places dental fillings in our Croton On Hudson dentist office using quality materials and advanced technology for patients with a range of dental concerns, preventing more complex problems down the road. Although a dental filling generally produces minimal to no discomfort due to the use of an anesthetic, we understand that many patients feel anxious at the prospect of having a cavity filled and make every effort to ensure your comfort.
Dental Fillings: What To Expect
Our warm, caring staff is dedicated to providing comprehensive, personalized dental care in an environment designed to make each patient feel welcomed and relaxed. Dr. Levey will discuss all aspects of your filling and recommend the appropriate type of filling (direct or indirect) for the size and location of the affected tooth.
Dr. Levey places porcelain or composite resin fillings for a durable and aesthetically pleasing result, color matched to your natural teeth. Dr. Levey can also replace old, dark or leaky fillings for an instant smile makeover.
Inlays & Onlays
Dr. Levey places high quality porcelain inlays and onlays when appropriate for treating a larger cavity or one located in the back teeth.
CEREC technology enables Dr. Levey to plan, create and place a custom fit inlay or onlay during a singe visit to our dentist office, restoring your oral health quickly and efficiently with lasting results that will blend with your natural smile.
As with a dental filling, an inlay or onlay can be used to treat tooth damage, strengthening the tooth and preventing further deterioration.
