What Are Metal-Free Restorations?
At NowDental of Suffolk, we pride ourselves on utilizing the latest advances in dentistry, like metal-free restorations, to provide our Stony Brook, Hauppauge, and Commack, NY patients with high-quality care. In the past, cavities used to be filled using a metal and mercury filling. Over time, however, we've learned that this can be dangerous and may not preserve the integrity of your teeth in the way we thought it would. To combat that, we now offer metal-free fillings to maintain the health of your mouth and blend in with the natural color of your teeth. For more information on metal-free fillings and our other metal-free restoration options, contact our Smithtown, NY office.

Can I Get Metal-Free Restorations?
If you or a family member need a filling, you may be a candidate for our metal-free restoration options. During an initial appointment, we can examine your teeth and look for signs of cavities, as well as the breakdown of older metal fillings. In the event a filling is necessary or a replacement is needed, we can create a metal-free treatment plan to address your specific needs.
What Can I Expect from Metal-Free Fillings?
To perform metal-free fillings, we will use a composite resin that is similar in color to your teeth. Using special instruments to remove damage and decay, we will clear out your cavity or previous filling. From there, we can use our tooth-colored resin filling to correct your damaged tooth from further decay. Our team offers a variety of sedation methods if you need a little extra help keeping calm during your treatment.
