Composite Fillings

Natural-Looking Fillings for Cavities

Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay may cause further complications, such as pain or infection. Composite fillings are a safe and effective solution to help preserve your teeth.

Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. We gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.

We can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. To request an appointment, contact Dental Sanctuary of Fanwood.

Dental Crowns

Restoring Damaged Teeth with Crowns

Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.

Dental crowns can:

  1. Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  2. Hold a cracked tooth together
  3. Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
  4. Cover a severely discolored tooth
  5. Restore a broken or severely worn tooth

Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants, or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years. For more information or to request an appointment, contact Dental Sanctuary of Fanwood.


Customized Restorations for Damaged or Decayed Teeth

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used as an alternative to full-coverage dental crowns. These dental restorations offer a well-fitting, strong, and long-lasting solution to tooth decay. Inlays and onlays can also be used in place of dental fillings. While dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a single dental visit, inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental lab before being fitted and bonded to the damaged tooth.

An inlay restoration is when the material is bonded within the center of the tooth. An onlay restoration is like an inlay restoration except the extent of the damage requires the inclusion of one or more cusps (the pointed portion of the tooth on the biting surface) on the tooth. Both inlays and onlays are highly durable and, with proper care, can last for many years. Some reasons for needing these restorations include large, failing restorations, lost fillings, or fractured cusps.

Advantages and benefits of inlays and onlays include:

  • Tooth color: Inlays and onlays are not likely to discolor over time.
  • Superior fit: This conservative approach preserves as many healthy teeth as possible.
  • Tight space protection: Inlays are best for sealing teeth to keep out bacteria.
  • Strength and stability: Inlays and onlays are extremely stable restorative solutions for the treatment of decay.
  • Tooth structure safeguard: Since the fit is tailored at all edges and preparation is minimal, your tooth will be easier to clean.
  • Weak tooth protection: An onlay can protect the weak areas of the tooth and the procedure does not require the complete reshaping of the tooth.
