Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have chipped, broken, or fractured. They can also be used to fill cavities that have been caused by tooth decay. At Bayberry Dental Care, we offer a variety of dental fillings that accompany our patient’s needs and we’d like you to learn more about them.
- Amalgam Fillings – Amalgam fillings have been safely used in the dental industry for over 150 years. Dental amalgam is a liquid mercury and metal alloy mixture used to fill cavities caused by decay. This option is less expensive and usually more durable than tooth-colored fillings due to their longevity factor.
- Porcelain (Tooth Colored) Fillings – Porcelain fillings are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to amalgam fillings because they are made to match the color of the tooth. Though they can be more fragile and usually require more than one visit to the dental office, they can help a patient maintain their natural appearance.
