For more than 150 years, cavities and other forms of tooth damage have been repaired with an amalgam of liquid mercury, silver, copper, tin, and other trace metals. While sufficient for restoring the structural integrity of a weakened tooth, amalgam fillings can be unsightly and unpredictable. Composite resin fillings – often referred to simply as tooth-colored fillings – are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to amalgam fillings, offering a natural look and long-lasting durability. At the office of Dr. David M. Weinman in Westfield, NJ, Dr. Weinman offers a comprehensive selection of restorative dentistry solutions, including tooth-colored fillings.
Advantages of Composite Resin Fillings
The most obvious reason that patients prefer composite resin fillings to silver amalgam fillings is the cosmetic benefit that they offer. Meticulously customized to match the shade of your existing enamel, tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly into your smile for a completely natural appearance.
Composite resin’s cosmetic advantages aren’t the only reason that they’ve become more popular over the past 20 years; unlike amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are resistant to changes in temperature. Teeth repaired with mercury amalgam fillings are substantially more susceptible to microfractures that eventually compromise the strength of the enamel, whereas composite fillings maintain their shape and size regardless of exposure to heat and cold. Tooth-colored fillings also require that less of your natural tooth structure be removed, making them a considerably more conservative dental solution as compared to amalgam fillings.

If you currently have a traditional crown, bridge, or denture, you may have wished at some point that there was a restorative solution that could give you back the kind of strong, permanent smile you once had.
The good news is that there is. At Dr. David M. Weinman’s dental office in Westfield, we can restore your smile’s appearance, structure, and function with dental implant-supported crowns, bridges and dentures.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Like traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures, dental implants work by replacing one or more missing teeth. But what sets them apart is the fact that they also replace any tooth roots you might be missing, too.
Made from biocompatible titanium, dental implants work by fusing with bone tissue in the jawbone, creating a firm foundation for your new smile. During the first phase of your dental implant procedure, your implant(s) will be placed in your jaw. Then, after that fusing process has been given time to happen, all that’s left is for Dr. Weinman complete your restoration by attaching your new crown, bridge, or denture.
What you’ll find afterwards is that your smile functions just like a natural smile, improving your confidence and your health in the process.
