Mercury-Free Fillings

The common silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Tong’s practice uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result for your smile.

Bonding & Sealants

Composite bonding resin is a tooth-colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your smile. Normal pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth can trap food that can’t easily be removed with brushing. A sealant is designed to bond to tooth enamel. These sealants are painted onto the tooth surface to seal these pits and grooves and protect against decay.

Dr. Tong Restores Dental Implants


A great option for replacing missing teeth, securing bridges, or affixing full-arch bridges, dental implants restored by Dr. James Tong of Highlands Dental in Clarksburg, Maryland can help you smile with confidence.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants bond directly to the jawbone by attaching a titanium post and connector to create a sturdy base for the crown. Dental implants with Dr. Tong are an excellent solution for those who want to improve their smiles while allowing the lifestyle you’re accustomed to – confidently smile, laugh, and eat what you want.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are made from a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to give it an improved shape, color, or size. If your teeth are chipped, stained, have an unsightly gap, or are ground down you should consider a makeover with veneers. In a very short time, you can look years younger and smile with confidence with beautiful, custom porcelain veneers from Clarksburg’s trusted veneers dentist, Dr. Tong.
