The Filling

To completely remove a cavity, the dentist may have to remove a large portion of the tooth. Instead of leaving your tooth with parts missing, we fill it with a composite filling. There are generally two types of fillings that are used in dentistry, silver amalgam, and composite filling.

Even though silver fillings are still available they are very unpopular since they are silver and very noticeable.

Composite fillings in Pasadena are more popular among the two types of fillings because they are tooth-colored fillings. When in need of a filling and composite material is chosen, the dentist can choose the color of the filling to match your natural tooth color.

Benefits of Composite Fillings
