What is a dental filling and when would I need one?
Many people get a tooth cavity at some point in their lives. If and when a cavity happens, it needs to be repaired in order to maintain a healthy mouth. Luckily, Mayfair Dentistry offers multiple cavity filling options that blend long-lasting strength with an attractive appearance.
For cavities located on chewing surfaces in less visible areas of your mouth, you can choose between the traditional silver-colored amalgam material and the composite resin tinted to match your tooth color.
- The amalgam filling is the strongest, most durable and least expensive option.
- The composite resin provides durable fillings for small- to medium-sized cavities, costs a little more and may be more attractive in both hidden and visible areas due to their realistic appearance.
- Glass or resin ionomers mimic your natural tooth color and are used for filling cavities in areas of the root or gum line.
Mayfair Dentistry's caring staff can help you choose the most cost-effective and attractive option to fill your cavity and preserve your dental health along with a strong, sparkling smile.
