Tooth-Colored Fillings in

For tooth-colored fillings in Hicksville, visit Philip M. Tornatore for the

professional and high-quality care you deserve.

The standard of care for many years for tooth restorations was amalgam fillings. However, amalgam fillings have many drawbacks, including:

  • Corrosion: the metal in the filling may corrode over time.
  • Expansion: over time, amalgam fillings expand and put pressure on the existing tooth structure. If the tooth wall is thin, fractures are a common occurrence.
  • Grey appearance: amalgam will shine through thin outside walls of teeth creating an unsightly, unaesthetic condition.


No longer do you have to be uncomfortable showing your smile with gold and silver amalgam fillings. Now you can smile with confidence as you show off your perfectly blended tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings use a composite resin material to restore and protect decayed teeth. Advances in composite resins have led to the increased strength of tooth-colored fillings and allow them to be used successfully for front and back teeth. The composite material used in tooth-colored fillings can also be applied to changing the color of teeth and reshaping disfigured teeth.
