Bronx dental filling or Bronx dental restoration is a dental healing material used to restore the function, uprightness and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss normally results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost deliberately during tooth preparation to advance the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the anticipated restorative material. Bronx Dental Filling also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by Bronx dental implants.


Bronx Dental Filling can be divided into two broad types: Bronx direct filling and Bronx indirect filling. All dental fillings can be further classified by their size and location. A Bronx root canal filling is a restorative technique used to fill the space where the dental pulp normally resides.

Dr. Nishita Gandhi and our team at Bronx DDS Family Dental, offer attractive Bronx metal-free fillings to Bronx area patients. Bronx Metal-free fillings, also called composites or white fillings, are the favorite material for giving you a more likely look! The two main ingredients for a Bronx metal-free filling are plastic resin and a filler of finely ground glass-like particles. The composite fillings are intended to match the tooth’s color and blend in naturally with the tooth enamel.


For hundreds of years, Bronx dental fillings have been used to restore teeth. Bronx Dental fillings are placed in teeth where Dr. Gandhi has had to take out tooth structure due to decay or fracture. In modern times questions arise about the protection of dental amalgam, the toxicity of its mercury content, and concern about mercury emissions when it is disposed of. Technology and products have also come a long way in recent years providing uses other less obvious, Bronx metal free filling options for tooth restoration. For this reason, Dr. Gandhi helps patients by using only metal free, tooth colored fillings, in avoidance of these concerns and for aesthetic results.




  • First Dr. Gandhi will use Local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to be filled.
  • The area is probed to determine if all the decay has been removed. Once it has, the space is prepared for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris.
  • Once the filling resin is in, Dr. Gandhi will finish and polish it.
  • Tooth-colored fillings require several additional steps. One, tooth-colored material is applied in layers. Two, a special light that hardens each layer is applied. Three, once the multi layering process is completed, Dr. Gandhi will do a beautiful job shaping the composite material to the desired result, trim off any excess material, and polish the fill.


Which type of filling is best?

To be very precise, no one type of filling is best for everyone. A lot of factors play a part in shaping the best option. Those include the location, extent of the decay, cost of filling material, and patients’ insurance coverage.
