Restorative Care for Cavities

Fillings are used to restore areas that have decayed, or are placed where additional strength is needed.

Teeth are generally filled with either silver or composite resin. Patients generally prefer composite resin due to its life like appearance. Often these fillings are “invisible”. The teeth look like perfect untouched teeth. These fillings bond to the teeth and effectively seal the tooth against further bacterial invasion as long as the bond is secure. However occasionally there are situations when silver is a more long lasting restoration.
