Traditionally, dental fillings have been made of silver amalgam. However, our dental office makes use of composite, or tooth-colored, filling material. Our dentist and team use composite filling materials in order to provide you with a more natural-looking result and to promote better long-term oral health. There are many benefits to composite fillings, including:
When you receive a composite dental filling, our dentist will carefully select a filling that matches your natural tooth color to give you a more beautiful and healthier-looking smile. Fillings can usually be placed in a single appointment. We most often use composite dental fillings unless circumstances dictate the use of a more suitable material.
