Fillings

Fillings or dental restorations are used to replace tooth structure that has been removed due to decay or other pathology. Fillings are used when there is enough healthy tooth structure remaining to support the restorative material.  Composite restorations (tooth colored fillings) are the most commonly used material in our office, however, there are some instances when we place Amalgam restorations (silver colored fillings). Both types of material have their advantages, and we would be glad to discuss them with you.
