Dental fillings are an unfortunate but necessary therapy for removing decay and preventing further progression into healthy tooth structure. 99% of the fillings we perform are restored with composite (tooth colored). We strive to make them look like teeth and hope that you won’t notice we were ever there. In the rare case where we need to use amalgam it can be a very useful and predictable restoration (ie; a root canal access through a gold crown) Modern amalgam is much safer and not as unstable as older amalgams. We promise to follow the position of the ADA and supported research evidence. Please also remember, it is all about you, so if you are uncomfortable we can help find another solution.
