If you’ve been told you need a dental filling, you’re not alone: 92% of Americans have had at least one cavity. They can be made of silver colored amalgam or white composite.
Amalgam fillings have been used by dentists for more than a 150 years and are still the most common type. However, composite fillings, which are made of a tooth-colored plastic and glass composite, are quickly becoming more preferred due to their natural appearance.
The type of dental filling used is determined by a number of factors, including size and location of the cavity, as well as your budget.
