Using dental fillings to restore teeth impacted by cavities

Dental fillings are the best way to restore the tooth’s function and appearance when cavities occur and sufficient natural tooth structure remains. At our dental practice, we are pleased to offer tooth-colored composite fillings as well as traditional silver amalgam fillings when indicated. 

What type of fillings are used at Shandley Kane Dental?

Our dentists routinely use the composite cavity-filling materials that looks as close to your natural tooth shade as possible. The composite tooth filling material has a resin component, allowing it to be used as a tooth-colored filling that blends in with the natural smile. We also offer silver amalgam fillings for specific situations if the amalgam provides better predictability and longevity of the restoration. We will discuss all of your options to decide which type of filling will work best for you.
