in Duncanville, Texas
Most people will develop a cavity at some time in their lifetime. Modern dentistry offers many options that blend long-lasting strength and attractiveness.
Should I Get Composite (Tooth-Colored) or Amalgam (Silver) Fillings?
Composite fillings are widely preferred to amalgam today to fill new cavities and replace old fillings needing repair. However, there are some instances when amalgam is still recommended, based on your individual health profile. In addition, some insurance providers will not approve composite fillings in posterior teeth, which would increase your out-of-pocket expenses.
Dr. Taiwo will first remove the decay and then fill the tooth using a tooth-colored composite resin. Resin fillings are durable long-term for most fillings and are virtually undetectable when you smile. Because they can be matched to your natural shade, they can also be used for filling cavities in areas on front teeth and near the gum line.
