Dental Fillings and You

Posted .

Do you have a cavity? You’ll probably need a dental filling. Tier One Dental has got you covered! At our office, we provide two kinds of fillings: composite fillings and amalgram fillings.

Composite fillings are made from a combination of materials such as resin, ceramic, and plastic. These fillings are shaded to match your natural tooth enamel. They are a perfect option for small cavities in visible teeth. We can also offer them if you wish to keep your whole smile cosmetically appealing.

Amalgam fillings are made of metal compounds like mercury, copper, tin, and silver. Because amalgam is dark in color, these fillings are typically used for the back teeth. Amalgrams are tougher than composites, withstanding pressure and force in the back of your mouth and lasting for many years. They are also a better option for large cavities.

To learn more about dental fillings in Seguin, Texas, remember that you can always call Tier One Dental at 830-372-2852 and talk to a member of our team.
