Dental fillings are commonly used on our patients at West Road Dental in Houston, TX. Tooth fillings help to prevent decay and remove bacteria from teeth. We use two types of dental fillings in our office: silver and composite fillings. How do you know which one is best for your situation? Keep reading to find out the benefits of these two options.
Composite fillings come in a variety of shades to closely match the color of your teeth. Composite fillings are used to replace tooth structure that has been removed due to decay, fix a chip in a tooth, or to replace amalgam filling. Composite fillings are made of a resin material that is layered, shaped with a dental instrument, and cured with a UV light. Once a tooth has been treated with a composite filling, there is no visible evidence the tooth has had treatment. It will appear natural & healthy.
