Are you about to repair a decayed tooth with a dental filling? If so, good for you! You’re on your way toward a strong and healthy smile once again. Before your dental appointment with our dentist, Dr. Tracey Tabor Williams & Amy Montefalco, our dental team will be happy to tell you about amalgam and composite dental fillings so you can know all about the treatments your dentist might use during your appointment.

Amalgam fillings

Amalgam fillings are also known as silver fillings. They are made of a variety of strong, durable metals and they help you restore your teeth after they have been damaged by decay. Amalgam fillings are typically used on the back teeth because of their strength and color.

Composite fillings

Composite fillings are also known as white or tooth-colored fillings. These fillings aren’t quite as strong as amalgam fillings, but they are still durable. They blend in with the teeth and look completely natural. They are typically used for the front teeth because of their strength and color.
