Fillings are among the most common dental procedures. The CDC recently reported that more than 90% of adults had a cavity at some point in their lives. With advancements in technology and anesthesia, filling a cavity is generally painless. The materials used for fillings are both long-lasting and can be colored to match your teeth.
To fill a cavity, Dr. Guillot uses both amalgam and composite fillings.
Amalgam fillings have a long history in treating cavities. They are made from a blend of metals set in your teeth that create a strong and durable surface. Their durability can withstand the high pressure of chewing on the back molars. Metal fillings are a more affordable option for many patients.
Composite fillings are made using a mix of plastic and ceramics. Once hardened, they offer strength and protection to the tooth along with a polished finish that complements your smile.
Signs That You May Have a Cavity
They don’t have to be! A big advantage of composite fillings is that they can be customized so that its final color looks just like your other teeth. They look completely natural.
