Teeth can be broken from trauma, chipping, or tooth decay. A filling may be required to fill the hole and protect the nerve in the tooth by keeping food and bacteria out.
- Composite fillings
– Also referred to as “adhesive” or “white fillings”, these chemically adhere to your tooth structure and provide you with a strong natural looking filling.
- Amalgam fillings
– Otherwise known as “silver” fillings, the amalgam is well known for its strength, and in appropriate cases provides a long lasting seal against bacteria.
