Do you have the feeling that a cavity has begun to arise in your mouth? Usually, cavities form before we can feel their effects, thus making it too late to prevent them from arising. However, with dental fillings including dental composites and dental amalgams, cavities can be safely and effectively treated.

Dental fillings come in a wide assortment of treatments being used for cavities, including composite fillings and dental amalgams. Tooth-colored composite fillings are mercury-free and are routinely called tooth-colored fillings, as the materials used for composites closes matches the look of natural teeth. With the aid of advanced color shading techniques, tooth-colored composites can be produced that match the look of your natural teeth. Furthermore, composites are best used for small and medium-sized cavities.

Another form of oral health care treatment used for cavities is dental amalgams. Dental amalgams are cavity treatments designed using a blend of metal held together with mercury as a binding agent. Dental amalgams are extremely effective against large cavities, but they are not tooth-colored and are known for the metallic shine they leave behind
