If you’re about to repair a decayed tooth with a dental filling, then you are on your way to a strong and healthy tooth once again! After your appointment, your smile will be as good as new. To help you know more about the treatment your dentist, Dr. Robert Wagner, might use for your tooth, our dental team is happy to tell you all about composite and amalgam dental fillings.

Amalgam Fillings
Amalgam fillings are made of a variety of different metals, which means they are durable as well as a dark silver color. They can last for many years and restore your oral health. They are generally used for the back teeth because they can handle the regular pressures of chewing. They are also used for the back teeth because of their dark color.

Composite Fillings
Composite fillings are made of a special dental resin and they are matched to the color of your teeth. This means they provide a natural looking appearance. This is a great option if you want to forget about your cavity altogether. This filling is generally used for the front teeth because it’s not quite as strong as amalgam fillings and it is a great way to improve the front of the smile without creating visible changes.
