Composite & Amalgam Fillings

Thanks to advanced technology, several dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold, porcelain, silver amalgam fillings or tooth-colored composite fillings constructed from glass and resin. Today, most of our restorative solutions are tooth colored due to the improved appearance and the increased strength imparted to the remaining tooth.  However, the location, extent of decay, cost , your insurance coverage and personal preference are all factors to consider in choosing filling materials. Our dental assessment will assist in determining whether an amalgam filling or a tooth-colored composite filling will best address your needs.
