Fillings are necessary restorations used to treat tooth decay and prevent the spread into the nerve canal. Cavities are caused by bacterial infections in the mouth that break through the tooths enamel. Historically, mercury amalgam fillings were used to treat cavities, however today composite – often referred to as white fillings are preferred.
White fillings are preferred by most patients over mercury fillings because they provide an excellent aesthetic finish and can be perfectly blended to match the tooths color.
We use the finest materials of glass and plastic particles to create durable fillings that are strong and blend with your natural tooth color. Once the filling has been bonded to your tooth, it will be virtually invisible.
