For years amalgam (metal) fillings were the standard for repairing cavities. While there are still instances where it makes sense to use them, we prefer to use non-metal fillings at Searcy Family Dental.
Fillings made of tooth-colored composite offer numerous advantages over metal fillings. A big one is their appearance. We match composite fillings to the color of your other teeth, so they blend in easily with your smile. No more silver or black spots showing!
In addition, we won’t have to remove as much of your tooth structure to place non-metal fillings. Plus, since they don’t contain mercury, you won’t have to worry about any health concerns associated with dental use of the chemical element.
