Dental Fillings - Composite, sedatative and repair fillings
Dental fillings are used to repair a tooth which has a cavity. Our dental office uses white and silver amalgam fillings. However, if you have older amalgam fillings, we will check to ensure that they are not failing. If your old amalgam fillings are failing and no longer sealing your teeth to protect them from bacteria, Dr. Weitz will replace your old silver fillings with your choice of composite fillings or silver fillings to restore your beautiful smile. Dr. Weitz uses mercury-free composite resin white fillings which have a natural color to match your tooth. This type of dental filling preserves your natural look and smile.

Tooth decay sometimes reaches the pulp (nerve) and can get infected. In such cases, Dr. Weitz will recommend root canal therapy. Millions of teeth are saved each year with root canal, or endodontic treatment. Root canal treatment can relieve your toothache and help restore your smile.

Crowns are used on your teeth to restore the natural shape of your teeth weakened with large fillings or root canal therapy. Crowns are made basically three ways; solid metals, porcelain on metals, or solid porcelain like materials. Porcelain on metal crowns offer many advantages, including strong and durable teeth, restoring natural look of your teeth and healthier teeth and gums. Cast gold and solid porcelain crowns are used on back teeth for strength and durability. Dr. Weitz's office uses gold as metal of choice on all of his porcelain on metal crowns, for a natural esthetics and no risk of metal allergies. All porcelain crowns looks just like your natural tooth. We match your teeth color to the porcelain crown and as such, your tooth with crown looks just like your other natural teeth.

A dental bridge is used to fill gap between missing teeth. The teeth on either side of the space are prepared for crowns and a false crown is attached between them. The types of bridges are just like the type of crowns, all metal, all porcelain, or porcelain on metals. Please click to find out for more information about our dental bridge services.
