Cast gold filling

Cast Gold Fillings

Cast gold fillings have excellent durability and do not abrade surrounding teeth. However, they can conduct heat and cold, and cause irritation. Cast gold fillings, inlays, and onlays are made with 14 to 18kt gold. For years, gold was the dominant choice of filling material due to its durability. 

Comprehensive Oral Examinations

A comprehensive oral examination is an essential component of your visit to Dr. Siegel. It involves a complete examination and recording of the health of your teeth and oral tissue. We may also take X-rays of your tooth structure and jaw to better diagnose any potential problems. Our exams are tailored to the needs of children, adults, and seniors.

Sealants

Sealants are made of plastic and are used to coat the teeth in order to protect them from decay. The first sealants became available to dentists in the 1970s. Many children have successfully avoided serious cavities since then by having sealants applied to molars and chewing surfaces. 

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a much-feared dental procedure, but it need not be. Dr. Siegel has the experience to perform root canal treatment with minimal discomfort. In fact, many of our patients have said that it is similar to replacing amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings.

Digital X-rays
