Filling repairs and restores the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear. There are two different choices that you have when it comes to filling a cavity.
- Composite Fillings- Natural tooth colored composite fillings are bonded and color match to the appearance of your existing tooth.
- Amalgam fillings- Silver/Metal alloy fillings are mixed with mercury and placed into the tooth. The color is dark, black and silver. These fillings are inexpensive and strong.
