For over 150 years, cavities were filled with a mixture of metals, including silver and mercury. It was perfectly normal to see dark grey areas in someone's mouth when they laughed.
But today, you can get your cavities, as well as any other smaller hollow areas in your teeth, filled with composite fillings. A composite dental filling is made from resins that are matched to your tooth's color, so they become invisible when applied. If you are in need of a cavity filling, our dental team will go over the options with you to make sure you get the tooth filling for your needs and budget.
Composite dental fillings also provide an excellent seal on the affected area, so that tooth decay can be prevented. The factors that go into our decision to use composite fillings include:
The size of the area that needs to be filled
The location of the affected area in the mouth (i.e., a tooth that is heavily relied on for chewing
Allergies the patient might have
The preference of the patient regarding the use of metals in the mouth
Whether it is necessary cosmetically to have a tooth-colored filling
If you are in need of a dental filling, ensure you are working with a dentist who offers everything you need to maintain your smile and tooth health. Our dentists work with high-quality materials and utilize industry best practices when providing your tooth filling, ensuring it lasts for years to come. Whatever your dental filling needs, rely on us to handle your smile with care.
