Dr. Weinstock and Dr. Waasdorp offer patients tooth colored dental fillings for their safety and aesthetic appeal. Traditional metal fillings have high levels of mercury that are believed to be associated with medical risks. Modern resin fillings can be color matched to blend seamlessly with the patient's natural smile, and are mercury free. Dental fillings are highly effective at restoring a tooth that has suffered from decay or minor damage.


Dr. Weinstock and Dr. Waasdorp offer patients the choice to remove old silver fillings and have them replaced with resin tooth colored fillings. Patients may choose to have this procedure done when their metal fillings are visible or in the “smile-zone”. Many patients have silver/mercury (amalgam) fillings from years past in their mouths. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth. Porcelain inlays and composite resins create fillings that are not only beautiful (and practically undetectable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are aesthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new adhesive technologies.
