Fillings

Keywords: Fillings

There are only two ways to fill a cavity: With the traditional silver metal amalgam filling or with the white plastic bonded filling. We do both types of fillings at Akron Dental Concepts. Not every cavity can be filled with both types of materials. Here's the pros and cons of each. Ask Dr. Aldrich which type of material is appropriate for you. Amalgam made of different metals with a trace amount of mercury starts out as a silver color and can turn darker over time can withstand crunchy foods over a long period of time, however can cause hairline fractures in the remaining tooth structure which can result in a broken tooth is not bonded to tooth so it can fall out inexpensive Bonded/Composite made of plastic color is matched to existing tooth color won't change color with whitening products can't withstand crunchy foods over a long period of time- will break and leak and need to be replaced especially if it's large is bonded to tooth expensive- many insurance companies will not cover bonded fillings in molar teeth
