Our Team Will Help You Choose the Right Tooth Filling

If you have a cavity or need to repair a damaged tooth, dental fillings can help restore your tooth’s function and appearance. Our practice offers two types of fillings: composite resin and silver amalgam. We’ll go over your options and help you decide which is better for your circumstances. Whether you need a composite or amalgam filling, our skilled dental team will provide the highest quality of care. We can make you comfortable with a neck pillow and blanket, and we will thoroughly numb the tooth before beginning your procedure.

We primarily use composite resin fillings at our clinic. They are made of a tooth-colored material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. These fillings will:

  • Blend easily into your smile, so they are an excellent choice for visible teeth
  • Bond directly to your tooth structure, providing strength and support

In some cases, we may recommend silver (amalgam) fillings. They are made of a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, and copper. They have been used for many years and are known for their durability. While they are not tooth-colored, they are often used for back teeth where appearance is less of a concern. We ensure proper isolation during the placement of amalgam fillings to minimize mercury exposure. Metal fillings will:

  • Better withstand heavy chewing pressure
  • Typically last longer than composite fillings

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth fillings are made of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, they can be matched to the color of your other teeth so they aren’t noticeable in your smile. They also cause fewer allergy issues than amalgam.

How long do tooth fillings last?

The life of fillings will vary, depending on their location and your oral hygiene, among other factors. A composite filling typically lasts from five to 10 years. No filling is designed to last a lifetime. You can maximize the life span of any filling by brushing and flossing every day and visiting us at least twice a year for professional cleanings.

Which tooth fillings are best?

We use two kinds of fillings: amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, and tooth-colored composite fillings. We often suggest using composite fillings because they require us to remove less of your natural tooth structure and look completely natural in your smile. However, metal fillings may be better for some situations. We’ll help you determine which one is right for you.
