What Are the Differences in Filling Types?

Learn about the advantages and disadvantages to each type of dental filling in Agoura Hills

Like we discussed earlier, there are many types of fillings that can help with a dental cavity in Agoura Hills. First are cast gold fillings. These fillings have a durability of about 10 to 15 years and have great strength. However, many may not want the appearance of gold in their mouth. A few disadvantages of this type of filling include the cost as gold fillings cost fairly more than other materials. They also require multiple dental visits. Next are silver fillings, or amalgams. This type of filling also lasts between 10 to 15 years and has quite a bit of strength. They are less expensive than other types of fillings. Some of their disadvantages include that they are silver so they do not match the color of your other teeth. Also, sometimes more of the healthy part of the tooth has to be removed to use these types of fillings. Amalgam fillings also contain mercury. Last are tooth-colored composite fillings. There are quite a few advantages to these fillings. They are the shade and color of your existing teeth, which makes it hard to tell they are even there. They also bond well to your current teeth providing more structure. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings require removing less of the tooth. Now that you know about the different types of materials involved in dental fillings, give our office a call at (818) 857-4430 to set up your appointment for repairing your dental cavity in Agoura Hills.

"Filling a Dental Cavity is Easy!"

"Filling a Dental Cavity is Easy!"

The steps to filling a dental cavity in Agoura Hills are simple at Artistic Smiles

"The steps to a dental filling in Agoura Hills are easy and pain free as the area involved is numbed before the procedure is started. Once the area has been numbed the decayed parts of your tooth will be removed with a drilling tool. Once the decay has been removed, Dr. John Abajian will test the area to make sure it was all removed in the process before filling. The area will then be cleaned and filled. Once the filling is in, Dr. John Abajian will finish and polish it to look as natural as possible. If you choose to receive a tooth-colored filling it will be applied in layers rather than all at once."
