Hello! Welcome to the Staten Island Dental Care dental blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our outstanding Staten Island dental practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.
My name is Frederick Hecht, DMD. I have been practicing dentistry in Staten Island since 1976. Staten Island Dental Care is a full-service dental office located at 1520 Richmond Ave in Staten Island. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for patients in the NYC area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.
When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a dental restoration is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.
If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible fillings that are tooth colored. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our Brooklyn cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.
If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at 718-761-5757 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our Staten Island dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.
Smile – it increases your face value!
