Two Filling Options: Traditional Amalgam Versus The Cosmetic Composite Resin
Once a cavity develops, it needs to be filled. The filling of the hole within the tooth helps to prevent the spread of decay and salvages the remainder of the tooth material. Still, when it comes to filling a cavity, there are multiple options that you and your dentist can choose from. One of the most popular materials used to fill a tooth is silver amalgam. Additionally, as cosmetic dentistry has grown in popularity, composite resin has become increasingly popular as a filling option.
