Amalgam fillings are the traditional choice, a well-established and reliable way to treat cavities, particularly those in the back teeth.
They are made from a combination of metals, including tin, silver and mercury. When in this alloy form, mercury is perfectly safe.
Composite fillings can transform your smile in a more cost-effective way than other methods. They are now more popular than amalgam, with many people opting for tooth-coloured composite for aesthetic reasons.
Composite is a type of resin made from a mixture of glass and plastic, which closely resembles enamel when hardened. It can also be colour-matched to your natural teeth, making it blend in perfectly.
A filling is a very common dental procedure, used for treating cavities in the tooth caused by decay. They are a highly effective way to restore the structure and functionality of a tooth. The affected tooth is prepared and the hole filled with a special material which is shaped and set to ensure it is comfortable in your mouth.
