New York Dentist on Cosmetic and Environmental Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings Provide Dr. Marianna Farber With a Fast Way to Improve the Look of Her Patients' Smiles While Simultaneously Protecting the Environment

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- As a cosmetic dentist in New York who focuses on creating an aesthetically pleasing look as well as maintaining healthy teeth and gums, Dr. Marianna Farber offers a number of services to improve the appearance of her patients' smiles. Procedures such as Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening can ensure that her patients look their best -- whether they are preparing for a special occasion or if they are simply seeking a smile makeover for their day-to-day lives. When her patients have a cavity, Dr. Farber uses advanced tooth-colored fillings as opposed to "metal" (amalgam) fillings to maintain the health of the teeth without compromising a beautiful smile.

Traditionally, dentists have used amalgam fillings when addressing cavities. These amalgam fillings have a metallic sheen that can be distracting to others when the patient is smiling or speaking. Porcelain, tooth-colored fillings eliminate this problem and disguise the filling by matching the color with the patient's natural enamel. In a recent blog post titled "Porcelain Fillings: A Holistic Alternative," Dr. Farber emphasizes the "blatantly artificial" look of the old-style metal fillings, while also noting the durability and safety of porcelain-based fillings. The new materials being used for these fillings are quite strong, mimic the properties of natural tooth enamel, and are biocompatible. According to Dr. Farber, these fillings can last 20 years before needing replacement.

Dr. Farber also has many patients enter her office who simply want to replace all of their old metal fillings with the new tooth-colored materials. This process can be completed in one or two office visits, depending on the number of fillings that need to be replaced, and often leave the patient feeling more confident with their rejuvenated smile. Dr. Farber considers using mercury free dentistry to replace amalgam fillings an "easy way to enhance the look of your teeth."

Finally, offering tooth-colored fillings fits in with Dr. Farber's holistic approach at her New York cosmetic dentistry practice. "In addition to the more natural look these porcelain-based fillings provide," says Dr. Farber, "tooth-colored fillings eliminate the risks that have been associated with mercury -- including the negative impact mercury fillings may have on the environment." Dr. Farber says Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry, her private practice, keeps up with the latest dental innovations and technology and strives to create a "greener" office while continuing to provide the best in cosmetic and general dental care.
