Composite & Ceramic Tooth Fillings to Repair Teeth

At Dr. Fred Blum & Associates, we specialize in tooth filling to restore your smile. 

Our team of experienced dentists is dedicated to providing the highest quality of dental care to ensure your teeth remain healthy and strong.

A tooth filling is an important part of dental care and is designed to both protect and strengthen your teeth. It is a safe and effective way to restore your teeth after they have been damaged by cavities, chips, and fractures. 

Tooth decay or tooth damage should be addressed right away in order to save the tooth. If it is not fixed with a filling it will continue to degrade, crack, become severely damaged and lead to eventual loss of the tooth.

We offer a variety of teeth fillings to suit every need.

Our state-of-the-art technology and our experienced staff allow us to provide you with the best possible filling for your smile. 

Types of Fillings

Composite Teeth Fillings

Today, composite teeth fillings are the most popular type due to new technologies and it’s superior durability and appearance. 

At Dr. Blum and Associates it is our dental filling of choice due to its added strength and it will not corrode.  This is an easy and gentle procedure for small cavities.

Ceramic Teeth Fillings

These are popular because the material used to cover up the cavity is formed in a dental lab and shaped to fit the cavity perfectly. 

Ceramic color can be matched perfectly to your teeth so it blends in perfectly. It is also extremely durable and long-lasting.

Gold Teeth Fillings

The benefit of gold teeth fillings is for patients that want the ultimate corrosion and tarnish-resistant teeth fillings that also won’t let saliva and associated bacteria into the cavity.

We use the latest in dental technology to custom-fit your tooth filling and make sure it looks natural and feels comfortable.

We understand that every patient has unique needs, and our experienced dentists will work with you to find the best solution for your individual case. 

We will explain the process in detail, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with the best care possible.

a personal care treatment plan with you!

Tooth Filling: FAQ

A tooth filling is an acrylic or gold replacement for a small amount of a  tooth lost due to trauma or bacterial acid breakdown.
Gold expands and contracts most closely to a natural tooth. Gold fillings (and crowns) have the greatest chance of lasting the rest of your life.
Our practice stopped placing Mercury-containing fillings over 20 years ago.   All the no-Gold fillings we place are tooth-colored, and match their neighboring teeth.

Dr. Blum, Dr. Dakwar, and staff are friendly, caring, and accommodating. The office is welcoming and conveniently located adjacent to 12 Corners. I’m happy to recommend them to family and friends.

I have been going to this dentist office for the past two years. The hygienists are great, and everyone in the office makes you feel comfortable and welcome. I have also had work done by Dr. Blum on a couple different occasions. He does a fantastic job and he makes sure that you are comfortable throughout.


Monica Anderson

The dental care provided me by Dr. Blum and his staff is one well grounded in the very best educational and professional standards available. The whole staff models a standard of excellence while being friendly and polite. Respect and genuine caring have been my experiences in a spotlessly clean, cheerful environment where my time is respected, as is theirs. Any urgent matter is given the utmost care and concern should the need arise outside office hours.


Heather Cook-smith

Friendly staff, gentle but thorough hygienist. Dr. Blum is a personable expert who treats his patients as if they're family.


Carl Kesselring

I have been going to Dr Blum's office for over 30 years. When he moved his office to the other side of the city I decided it was worth the trip to stay there. I don't think you can get better dental care anywhere else.
