Dental fillings on Broadway, Queens

Astoria Dental is proud to offer you the highest-quality and healthiest material options to choose from for your dental fillings.

Fillings are required when there is damage to your tooth that exposes it to bacteria and decay. We’re one of the most advanced dental offices in Astoria—we specialize in applying fillings using a BPA-free composite colored in white. These high-end composite fillings are custom-made. Not only do they fit your teeth perfectly, their made to match the current shade of your teeth as well. That way, you won’t feel self-conscious about your smile!

Along with the confidence that color-matching teeth brings to your smile, another advantage of composite fillings is that the doctor is required to remove less of the patient’s tooth. With classic amalgam fillings, more of the tooth must be removed to make way for the filling.

Composite fillings, designed using the latest technology in biocompatible materials, are durable and long-lasting. They’ll faithfully provide your tooth with the protection it needs to remain healthy. You’ll be able to live your life with confidence, free from daily worries about your teeth. You can consider these custom-made fillings as an extension of your own natural tooth.

Porcelain fillings

Porcelain is a material that beautifully withstood the test of time. Fillings made of porcelain are not only a sight to behold, closely resembling the beautiful sheen of naturally well-kept teeth; they’re also durable.

Porcelain fillings are superior to amalgam fillings because, unlike amalgam fillings, porcelain ones will not require the removal of additional parts of the tooth’s structure. The only parts that need to be removed are the parts that have decayed. the decayed parts need to be removed.

Porcelain fillings are also referred to as dental inlays and onlays. They’re different from composite fillings in a few ways. First, unlike a composite filling, dental inlays and onlays require 2 separate visits to the office. On the first visit, the doctor will determine the exact dimensions of the porcelain filling by taking measurements (including x-rays if needed). Then, this information is sent to the laboratory. The laboratory then fabricates your custom inlay or onlay, which is then shipped back to our office. At your next visit to our office, we’ll cement or bond the porcelain to the structure of your tooth. Because the porcelain fillings a made of a superior material, they do not darken over time, meaning you can be confident that your smile will stay clear and bright.
