Our Natural-Looking Fillings Will Look Great
Cavities can sneak up on you, even if you practice good oral hygiene at home. That’s why it’s important to visit Konstantine Trichas DDS, LLC twice a year for regular checkups. These routine visits will allow us to keep an eye on your oral health and catch any problems before they have the chance to do serious smile damage.
If you do develop cavities, Dr. Trichas can repair them using tooth-colored composite resin fillings. He will first select a shade that will match the color of your other teeth. After carefully applying the composite and molding it to the exact shape needed, we will use a special light to harden the material. Your new filling should last for many years without any special care.
We Also Place Inlays & Onlays
Sometimes our patients’ teeth need more repair than a regular tooth filling can handle. In these cases, when an entire crown isn’t necessary, we can have custom inlays and onlays crafted. Inlays bond to the top of your teeth between the cusps (tips), while onlays also extend over onto the sides of the tooth. These restorations are usually made from porcelain; however, we can also have them made from gold if desired.
If you need an inlay or onlay, we will take impressions of your tooth so that our lab partner can make it to exact specifications. Once it is ready, you’ll return to our office and Dr. Trichas will bond it into place.
Basking Ridge tooth fillings can make a damaged tooth good as new. If you need a filling, call us today at (908) 356-6635 to schedule your appointment.
