Bonded Amalgam Silver Restoration
When your tooth needs filling, a bonded amalgam filling is a good option in the back teeth. New techniques have enabled us to bond the fillings into the teeth. This makes the filling and the tooth much stronger than a conventional filling. It also cuts down on post operative sensitivity
Wouldn’t you rather have white fillings? With today’s technology, white fillings (composites and inlays) can easily withstand the stress required to serve as a filling in a back tooth. Our patients now overwhelmingly prefer these fillings because of the way they look and feel, and because they strengthen weak teeth.
Inlays and onlays
Some dentists prefer not to put white fillings in back teeth, as they are not always successful. One way around this would be to use crowns or inlays, but this can mean removing more of the tooth and can be more expensive.
