Dr. Le Pera is amazing! Came out early on a Sunday for an emergency… Helped my daughter and put her at ease… From the Doctor, to the hygienist , to the secretarial staff- all are outstanding!
Sooner or later, most of us will develop a cavity. One of the best ways to repair cavities without compromising your smile’s appearance is with Tenafly tooth fillings from Summit Dental. Our fillings are metal-free, which will give you peace of mind. They can also:

You probably don’t want to think about getting a tooth filled. However, at Summit Dental, a filling doesn’t have to be a big deal. We’ve placed many teeth fillings over the years, so our experience means you’ll enjoy a comfortable procedure.
Not only do we offer your choice of sedation options, either conscious sedation or deep sedation, but you’ll also enjoy a private patient care room and a cozy blanket you can nestle under. Plus, our staff will take time to answer all your questions and make certain you understand your dental care before any work is done.
After you’re comfortable, your dentist will:
If your tooth has suffered more damage than a filling can repair, then we may need to use an inlay or onlay. These restorations are often made from porcelain and are bonded into place on the top (inlay) or the top and sides (onlay) of the tooth.
For even more extensive damage, a crown may be required. We’ll have one made for you that will completely cover your tooth to strengthen and protect it.
Great dentist and staff. Very glad I chose to come here for my dental visit. Definitely recommend to friends and family!
This was my first visit at a new dentist office and I was nervous to get my checkup. I enjoyed my hygienist Carmen, the cleaning it was very thorough and the staff was very professional. I will definitely be back for my 6 month visit!
Dr. LaPera had been my dentist for 15 years. He is extremely professional and has a wonderful pleasant manner. I recommended him to a friend from NYC and she now goes regularly. I am fortunate to have found him when I moved from NY.
Excellent dental practice. I have been a patient for 20 years. The doctors and staff are professional, on time and caring. Great communication and they always put the patient’s needs first. I have recommended Summit Dental to other friends who have also been highly satisfied. My teeth love these guys.
This is the best dentist I have been to. The place is very clean they have been sanitizing everything down before covid-19 came into existence. The doctor is the best dentist i know of he is very kind, patient, and gentle. His work is perfect.
I would highly recommend this dental practice for all dental care. Dr. Le Pera is a true perfectionist and his care for the patients is his main priority. My experience is my main focus to this review. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. Carmen, the Hygienist, is also a wonderful asset to the practice. She is thorough with her cleanings and care for her patients. Definitely an A+
Loved my hygienist Carmen. She gave me lots of helpful tips and didn’t use electric tools to clean. I loved this because I have a lot of sensitivity and the electric tools exacerbates my symptoms. Which means she listened to my worries and honored them. Dr. Le Pera is awesome as always and keeps me well informed.
Really the best dentist I could ever ask for. I know they are a trusted source and Dr. L is truly one of a kind. Someone who genuinely cares about his clients- it always feels like family. I do all my work here- what I love is that if Dr. L is super honest – and if he knows of someone better suited for a particular procedure he will tell me transparently and recommend the best. No dentist can beat him. He doesn’t look to do more work than needed and always takes a conservative approach to help retain your natural teeth as much as possible. (Important to me since I’ve broken my 3 front teeth in half due to a fall and he’s done brilliant veneers). The receptionist and support staff are lovely as well. And if you need a cleaning ask for Carmen – she’s fantastic.
From the warm welcome upon arrival, to the thorough cleaning by Carmen the Hygienist, to the professional and gentle exam by Dr Le Pera, my experience was terrific. I’ll be back!
We’ll strive to make sure that you have a pain-free tooth filling experience. Not only will we numb the location we’re working on, but you can likewise take your option of calming sedation options to assist in reducing your dental anxiety. We want your time with us to be as comfortable as feasible.
At Summit Dental, we make use of only tooth-colored composite resin fillings. You can anticipate your brand-new filling to last for a minimum of five to seven years, although they can in some cases last several years longer. The precise lifetime of your dental filling will depend on elements such as the kinds of foods you consume as well as your oral treatment routine.
Generally, all materials for tooth fillings are safe. While no clear-cut evidence has been found that metal dental fillings are dangerous to people, we choose to be on the conservative side when it involves our patients’ health. That’s why we use only metal-free composite fillings that are composed of small bits of glass and plastic.
