Restorations (fillings) are placed on teeth that have lost some of its structure and integrity due to decay, chips/fractures or replacement of leaking restorations. We most commonly use resin composite/glass iononer (“white fillings”), porcelain and metal inlays or onlays. While we do not routinely use amalgam (metal) fillings, it is an option that is provided at the practice for patient who prefer it. We also can replace existing amalgam restorations with composite restorations at our patients request, it is best to discuss this with our dentists.
