Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings:
A dental filling is a dental restoration that is used to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay, wear, or trauma. Dental fillings are designed to restore the shape, function, and strength of the tooth, while preventing further decay and damage. The choice of filling material will depend on various factors, including the location and size of the cavity, the aesthetic concerns of the patient, and the preference and expertise of the dentist. Our dental practices choose to be amalgam-free to prioritize the safety and well-being of our patients, as well as the environment. By choosing to use alternative filling materials, we can provide high-quality dental care that is both safe and sustainable. Here are some common types of dental fillings:

  • Amalgam fillings: Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are made from a mixture of metals, including silver, copper, tin, and mercury. There are some concerns that exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings may pose a risk to certain groups of people, such as pregnant women, nursing mothers, and young children.

  • Composite fillings: Composite fillings are made from a tooth-colored resin material that can be shaded to match the color of your teeth. Composite fillings blend in with the surrounding teeth, making them a more aesthetically pleasing option, while amalgam fillings are more noticeable due to their silver color. Composite fillings and they are also suitable for small to medium-sized cavities in the back teeth.

  • Ceramic fillings: Ceramic fillings, also called porcelain fillings, are made from a material that is similar in color and texture to natural teeth. They are a good choice for filling cavities in the front teeth, where appearance is important. They are also durable and long-lasting, making them a good choice for larger cavities.

  • Gold fillings: Gold fillings are made from a mixture of gold and other metals. They are strong and durable, making them a good choice for large cavities in the back teeth. However, they are noticeable when you smile and are more expensive than other types of fillings.
