Dental fillings are used to repair minor cavities, fractures and cracks in the teeth. Our dentists can provide two types of fillings to better meet your dental needs. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and closely matched to the color of your existing teeth, while amalgam fillings are silver and often a good choice for children’s baby teeth. We can place your amalgam or composite filling in just one visit to Morgan & Associates. When you receive a filling, our dentists will:
- Remove the damaged or decayed portions of your tooth structure
- Thoroughly clean the remaining tooth to remove all traces of decay
- Place, shape and polish the filling to give you a lasting restoration
Both composite fillings and amalgam fillings are completely safe and effective. Your filling will work to restore the tooth to its original shape and function and return your smile to good health. If you have sustained any kind of minor tooth damage, a filling could be a good option for you.
