Dental Fillings, Your Choice of Materials

Types of Fillings

There are four different choices that you have when it comes to filling a cavity.


1. Composite Fillings - Natural tooth-colored filling, bonds to the tooth to provide added security.
2. Silver Fillings - Inexpensive and strong amalgam based filling.
3. Gold Fillings - More attractive than silver and provide for a better fit.
4. Porcelain Fillings - Also called inlays; the most attractive and durable of the tooth colored choices.

Color Matched Dental Fillings

Composite Fillings or Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings, white fillings and composite resin fillings are all names for the high-strength, natural-looking fillings that can be placed today instead of silver or gold (also known as amalgam fillings). No matter what the name, Floss & Co. will know just what you're talking about when referring to this natural-looking filling.

Strong and Natural Look Dental Fillings

Before Tooth Colored Fillings Benefits After Tooth Colored Fillings Benefits

White fillings are made from a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth making it nearly invisible to you and anyone else. Unlike silver and gold fillings, composite tooth-colored fillings actually bond to the tooth which means they support the surrounding tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes. You are much less likely to have a composite filling fall out which is a common issue with metal fillings.
