Composite and Amalgam Fillings
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dentists use both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.
Reasons for Fillings
What Does a Filling Involve?
First, Dr. Calkins DDS will answer any questions you have and will apply anesthetic to the tooth requiring the filling.
Dr. Calkins DDS will thoroughly remove the decay that is present and prepare the tooth to successfully bond with either the composite material or amalgam (silver alloy).
