At Serene Dental Aesthetics we specialize in tooth colored fillings or composite resin fillings, which are made of plastic and glass material.
One of the most common dental procedures is the filling. A filling is required when decay or a cavity is present in your tooth. The decay is removed from the tooth and then needs to be restored or “filled.” A filling can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth in the event a crown is not needed.
Other types of filling materials include silver, amalgam, gold and porcelain. Amalgam fillings are the common silver fillings, which are made with mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc & copper.
