A dental filling is one of the most common restorations we provide at our office. If a tooth has suffered from minor to moderate damage, such as a cavity caused by tooth decay, we may suggest a filling to restore the tooth’s structure and health. There are two main kinds of dental fillings available, and we offer both at our office to accommodate your personal needs and preferences.
- Composite fillings — Also known as tooth-colored or white fillings, composite fillings are created from a substance known as composite resin. Our dentist can match the shade of resin to your original tooth color, resulting in a natural-looking appearance. The composite resin also forms a strong bond with the natural tooth structure for a lasting restoration.
- Amalgam fillings — An amalgam filling is made of dental amalgam, which is a mixture of metals. Amalgam fillings are silver in color and have been successfully used in dentistry for many years.
