Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are the most commonly used type of filling. It is the ideal material for fillings because it is durable, easy to apply, and it is inexpensive. Compared to composite resins that are an alternative material for fillings, amalgam is both longer lasting and less expensive. Porcelain fillings are just as durable, but much more expensive.

You may be aware that mercury is a component, along with at least one other metal, of amalgam. The mercury in the filling has no health effects on your body. Both the American Dental Association and the FDA support amalgam fillings as a safe and effective means for treating cavities and restoring teeth. If you have a cavity an amalgam filling is a safe, durable, and easy way to restore you tooth and, most importantly, has a small effect on your wallet. If you have a cavity, call us today.
