Old "Silver" Fillings


For close to 100 years, dentists have been using metal fillings. In the past, the silver or dark fillings, called amalgams, were used exclusively. Now, tooth-colored fillings are used for teeth with minimal to moderate damage from decay or trauma. They provide an excellent restoration for the tooth as well as looking much more natural. For teeth with more extreme damage, laboratory processed composite or porcelain restorations may be required.
