  • Pain while chewing or biting
  • Food lodging in your tooth
  • Dark spots on your tooth
  • Broken or cracked teeth

Types of Dental Fillings We Offer

Kids & Family Dentistry offers affordable dental fillings in New Jersey. We assess your dental condition and needs to determine the type of material that best suits your requirements. The process typically involves filling the cavity, cleaning out decay, and supporting the tooth for stronger, safer options, including:

Silver Amalgam Fillings

Our traditional silver amalgam fillings combine silver, zinc, tin, copper, and mercury. It is a durable combination of materials that ensures a tooth filling lasts. We are careful to use high-quality materials to avoid contamination, and amalgam fillings last up to fifteen years with proper maintenance.

Advantages

  • Durable for chewing force
  • Affordable

Composite Fillings

A composite dental filling uses composite resin that closely matches natural teeth. The material looks and feels natural. We place a composite dental filling while it is still soft, curing it with light to fix it in place for a painless procedure. 

Advantages

  • Versatile
  • Natural appearance
  • Excellent tooth support for up to ten years

Ceramic Fillings

Stain-resistant ceramic fillings are another popular choice for dental fillings in New Jersey. Our ceramic fillings match your natural tooth color and resist abrasion well. We use an appropriate size to prevent breakages for a filling that lasts around fifteen years.

Advantages

  • Natural appearance
  • Resistant to stains and abrasion

Glass Ionomers

A unique solution for children’s teeth are glass ionomer fillings. The delicate teeth are sensitive and change in structure over a short time. Glass ionomer is a combination of glass and acrylic that protects a child’s tooth from further damage by using glass ionomers that release fluoride periodically.

Fluoride improves the child’s overall oral health and keeps up well with all the changes in your children’s teeth. We use our glass ionomer option for up to five years before another dental checkup reassesses the next steps needed.

Advantages

  • Suitable for children
  • Prevents infection
  • Strengthens teeth
