White Fillings

Tooth Restoration | Tooth-Colored White Fillings in the North Bergen & Passaic Area

Castillo and Mulkay Dental specializes in restoring teeth with the help of tooth-colored white fillings, also known as composite resin fillings. White fillings provide a more pleasing, silver-free and natural appearance than silver or dark grey colored amalgam fillings. Like porcelain veneers and crowns, they can be matched to the color of your teeth, leaving you with a perfectly restored smile.

What are White Fillings?

White fillings are a mixture of powdered glass (silicon dioxide) and plastic resin, and can be made to resemble the appearance of your natural tooth. At Castillo and Mulkay Dental, we offer many types of cosmetic fillings. The type of white filling to be used will depend on the location of your tooth and the amount of tooth structure that needs to be repaired. The white fillings we use can be bonded into place in one appointment. This procedure is also known as Dental Bonding.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

At Castillo and Mulkay Dental, we remove and replace old metal fillings with tooth-colored white fillings. The vast majority of patients are now opting for the removal of silver amalgam fillings because they contain a high amount of mercury, known to be more toxic than lead, cadmium or arsenic. Many medical practitioners believe mercury causes physical and psychological problems in patients, such as neurodegenerative diseases, birth defects and mental disorders.
