For years, the silver-colored amalgam has been the standard filling material used in dental practices. They are effective, affordable, and covered by insurance in most situations. Our practice also offers modern, state-of-the-art restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. The biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look—nearly invisible, compared to the metal filling. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth to decrease the chance of future decay. We are proud to offer both amalgam and composite fillings, and will be happy to discuss which option is best for you.
