Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam, or silver, fillings are made up of a variety of metals. This type of filling, along with composite fillings, is used to fill cavities. Amalgam fillings are a safe and less expensive alternative to composite fillings. There is a proven track record of over 150 years that shows amalgam fillings as one of the safest and least expensive fillings used in dentistry.

Composite Fillings

Composite, or tooth-colored, fillings are made up of plastic and ceramic compounds used to restore a tooth that has decay. There are many benefits to having a tooth-colored filling. One of the major benefits is that it’s more aesthetically pleasing as opposed to a silver filling. It also bonds to the remainder of the tooth helping to prevent breakage.
