Fillings are one of the most common treatments for cavities and tooth decay. Used to repair damage to your tooth enamel, fillings literally fill in the empty spaces left on your tooth once decay has been removed.
The two most common filling materials are amalgam fillings and composite resin fillings. Amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals and are silver in color. Compared to other fillings, amalgam fillings are considered long lasting and extra durable. Composite fillings, also known as white fillings or tooth-colored filling, are made from resin material and can be matched to your natural tooth color. We will help you decide which type of filling is best based on your individual needs and desires.
