They restore smiles while amplifying your confidence and overall well-being. Here, we discuss different dental filling types that you can consider for your next dental restoration procedure.

[[[H2:Amalgam Fillings (Silver Fillings)]]
Amalgam fillings are known for durability. They combine metals like silver, tin, and copper to create a long-lasting dental restoration solution. When you need an especially large filling, an amalgam filling can typically complete the restoration.

Ceramic Fillings

Ceramic blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are made of porcelain, which has been used successfully in dental restoration. Ceramic fillings are not easily stained and keep your smile vibrant over time. And being metal-free, they are the best alternative for those with tooth sensitivity issues.

Gold Fillings

Gold fillings bring a bit of luxury to dental options. Made of gold alloy, they are durable and stand the test of time. Although a bit pricier, they are an investment worth your consideration. The distinctive appearance of gold steals the show, adding a touch of regal charm to your pearly whites.

Composite Fillings

Lastly, composite fillings are the artists of the dental world, utilizing a mix of plastic resin and glass particles. They bring to the table a lot of versatility, enabling adaptability to your dental needs with ease. With composite fillings, your dental repairs are sure to last and look fabulous.


Each of these dental fillings has its unique charm, and choosing the right one is like finding the perfect fit for your smile. So, whether it is the timeless strength of amalgam, the natural allure of ceramics, the regal touch of gold, or the artistic flair of composites, your smile is in good hands. To help you determine which filling is best for you, consult with our dentist at your next appointment.
