From Dr. Piccolo’s perspective, there is really no such thing as a ‘routine’ dental procedure. We respect each of our patients as an individual with unique needs. Remaining true to our mission, each patient receives customized, one on one care. With a constant eye on achieving optimal health, we will work together with you to assess your condition and select the most appropriate treatment.
When a filling is necessary to restore a tooth, the strongest and most esthetically pleasing materials are selected with your optimal health in mind.
Tooth-colored fillings made of resin or porcelain are used to eliminate tooth decay and strengthen your teeth. Generally, our patients appreciate the fact that these restorations blend seamlessly with the enamel. In fact, tooth-colored fillings can be so perfectly matched to the shade of your enamel, they become virtually invisible to those around you.
Ever mindful of the total impact to your overall health, Dr. Piccolo has selected tooth-colored materials that can also fulfill many important functional requirements. These filling materials are notable for their ability to permanently bond to the tooth surface. This bond increases the tooth’s integrity and reduces the risk of separation between the filling and the tooth.
Tooth-colored fillings pose little or no allergic potential and contain no questionable additives or chemicals. As a poor conductor of temperature, a tooth-colored filling helps to reduce sensitivity to hot and cold stimulants. These fillings are also extremely durable, resistant to fracture, and able to withstand normal biting and chewing.
At the conclusion of your visit, Dr. Piccolo will ensure that your bite feels comfortable and stable. It’s our goal to provide you with world-class service and results that exceed your highest expectations.
