Whether as a child in a candy craze or an adult who neglects to floss, most Americans experience fillings for cavities at some point in their lifetime. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings that are shaded to match your surrounding teeth and bond your teeth together better. Heal your smile without embarrassing silver fillings visible on your back teeth.
