Amalgam (silver) fillings feature a combination of metals that include silver, tin, mercury, and copper. They are cost effective option.
Many patients prefer a more cosmetically pleasing alternative to metal fillings, especially if the affected tooth is toward the front of the mouth.
Composite, a tooth-coloured material incorporating elements of glass and acrylic resin, is an excellent cosmetic and minimally invasive option for the patient. The use of composite allows your dentist to preserve more of your natural tooth. In some cases, areas of decay can be removed by air abrasion without discomfort or drilling – the ideal preparation before a filling. Composite fillings have vastly improved in strength in recent years and are consequently a very popular treatment at Mint Dental
