How Are Dental Fillings Used?
After treating your dental decay or damage, your dentist can use a filling to seal the area and restore the shape and function of your tooth. Fillings can be made from a variety of materials, including silver amalgam, composite resin, or gold.

See How Fillings Can Restore Your Smile
Amalgam Fillings vs. Composite Fillings
Amalgam fillings are different than gold fillings. Dental amalgam contains multiple types of metal, like silver, mercury, and tin.
While rare, the metals in amalgam can cause adverse reactions in patients with a metal allergy or sensitivity. Amalgam also looks metallic and can stand out in your smile.
These fillings are made from tooth-colored composite resin, which includes a mixture of metal-free synthetic materials.
Unlike amalgam, composite resin is hypoallergenic and won't cause any adverse effects. Composite fillings also look more subtle than amalgam fillings, blending in with your enamel and allowing you to discreetly repair your smile.

Can Children Get Dental Fillings?
While it may seem like fillings for children are unnecessary, they can play an important role in your child's dental health.
If cavity-causing bacteria spreads to the tooth roots, it may lead to an uncomfortable condition like an abscess or gum disease. After treating your child's dental decay, we can seal their tooth with a natural-looking filling to restore their bite, smile, and health.
We know your child may not be eager to visit the dentist's office, so we'll do everything we can to keep the experience comfortable, calm, and engaging for you both. We have a family-friendly team of caring professionals who will take the time to ensure your child receives the excellent care they deserve.

How to Prevent Future Cavities
Brush with toothpaste that contains fluoride. This mineral can help strengthen your teeth. If you need recommendations, you can ask Dr. Bonner about his top choices.
Plaque contains acids that eat away at your tooth enamel, causing cavities. Flossing each day will help you prevent plaque buildup. It will also help keep your gums clean and free from gum disease.
Our dentists provide routine exams and cleanings to help your smile stay healthy and beautiful. Attending regular appointments will let your dentist notice and treat any changes in your teeth more quickly.
