In the past, cavities were filled with amalgam, which is a mix of silver and mercury. Because these fillings can damage the teeth over time, many dental offices have phased out this material.
At Southern Roots Dental, we offer tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are used to restore teeth that are experiencing decay, or cavities. These fillings are created to closely match the natural color of your teeth, so they are not as noticeable as silver fillings.
