Composite and Amalgam Fillings

Fillings are performed when there is active decay in the tooth that needs to be removed and can simply be “filled”. Fillings can be done on most teeth that do not have extensive amounts of the tooth missing due to being broken. Composite material is tooth colored and is very popular for a lot of people because of its cosmetic appearance. Amalgam fillings are “silver” fillings that have been used for many years and are very durable and safe.
