No More Metal Fillings

At our Massapequa dentist office, we offer patients the latest in modern white composite fillings instead of traditional silver and mercury amalgam fillings.

Composite fillings are:

  • Free of metal and mercury
  • Custom made to match your natural teeth
  • More comfortable and more durable
  • Able to make your teeth stronger!

If you’ve been told you need a filling, ask your dentist about composite fillings for more information.

All Fillings Are Our Specialty!

Our dentists take a proactive approach to treating cavities with composite porcelain fillings. During your regular exams and checkups, we look for any sign of possible decay. Once decay takes root, it will continue to spread unless repaired and treated.

By catching cavities early, our dentists are able to place smaller composite fillings. This will make your filling more durable, less noticeable, and also helps you maintain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.

When decay isn’t treated quickly with a small dental filling, it can lead to more serious problems. You might even need a root canal or other more invasive treatment options.


Replacing Mercury Fillings

Do you have old mercury fillings in your mouth? Our dentists are trained to safely remove silver fillings and replace them with durable and natural white composite fillings. We use high-tech

Patients who’ve had mercury fillings removed often say they are less self-conscious of how their teeth look and that their teeth are less sensitive, too!

If you have questions about having your mercury fillings removed, contact our office for more information.

What Causes Cavities & Tooth Decay?


Your mouth is home to millions upon millions of bacteria. Don’t worry, most are harmless and many are even helpful! But bacteria can also cause cavities to form. Here’s what happens:

  • Bacteria feast on simple sugars and produce acid, which can damage the outer layer of your teeth.
  • A diet rich in sugary and acidic foods like soda, juice, candy, etc. provides more “fuel” for the bacteria.
  • Poor brushing and flossing habits allow bacteria to build up in your mouth and become hard to remove

The end result? Cavities and decay. A healthy balanced diet, good at-home brushing habits, and regular dental cleanings help reduce your risk of needing a cavity filling in the future.
