Although many practices still use silver-mercury amalgam fillings, we use only composite resin restorations. Amalgam fillings have certain shortcomings. They do not adhere well to teeth, letting decay grow under the filling. A dark plug in light teeth is very noticeable and not aesthetically pleasing for most people. Our modern restorations blend in with the shade of your tooth and actually add strength to its structure. They create a tight bond with the remaining part of the tooth, so the chance of decay is minimized.
