Tooth Colored Fillings, Crowns and Bridges

There was once a time when if you needed restorative dental work such as fillings, crowns, and bridges, your only option was to have your teeth repaired using non-white, metal fillings, or amalgams of gold or mercury. Thankfully, the modern age of cosmetic and restorative dentistry comes with a variety of options, and no one needs to settle for dental work with any materials that they do not want.

“Thank you all so much for all of the tender loving care I received from all of you with my latest mishap. I am still enjoying the beautiful flowers.” – Marilyn Tracy

“One of my patients in the clinic asked for ‘white fillings’ during my senior year, just when light activated materials first came out,” Dr. Bernstein reminisces. “I was lucky enough to be one of the first dental students trained to use these new materials.”

“Then, my first job out of school was in an office that had a mercury spill, so they didn’t use mercury amalgam fillings anymore. In learning about the cosmetic materials, I found that they had a lot of advantages over mercury amalgam and gold.”

The advantages of Metal-Free fillings, crowns and bridges are as follows:

  • – Less invasive placement
  • – More stable than mercury amalgam
  • – Provide a tighter seal
  • – Do not weaken teeth since they don’t expand with heat the way metal does.
  • – Restoring teeth to their original strength and to a beautiful appearance

Now, with the latest generation of materials, even bridgework can beautifully mimic nature without metal. And with Dr. Bernstein having been at the forefront of restorative cosmetic dentistry since dental school, there’s no reason to settle for anything but the best. If you have cavities or worn out dental work, or if you just want to replace your existing dental work to make it look beautiful, Dr. Bernstein can help you with gorgeous dental restorations that defy detection.
