Hello! Welcome to the Staten Island Dental Care blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our Staten Island cosmetic dentistry 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 Dr. Frederick Hecht. I have been practicing cosmetic dentistry in the Staten Island area since 1976. Staten Island Dental Care is a full-service dental office located at 1520 Richmond Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314. In addition to providing comprehensive oral health examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the Staten Island 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 tooth colored fillings. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our Staten Island 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’.
Another reason some Staten Island clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.
If you would like try instant teeth whitening by replacing 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 cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.
Smile – it increases your face value!
