Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings in Soldotna, AK

Dental fillings are one of the most common treatments today for tooth decay and cavities. They are used to restore a tooth to it’s natural state, before decay got a hold of the tooth’s enamel. A filling is material that is adhered to the tooth once the decay has been removed and literally fills the empty spaces caused by damage.

There are two commonly used materials for creating fillings; amalgam and composite resin. There are a couple of differences between these two types of fillings.

  • The amalgam fillings are made up of metals with a silver color. The mixture of materials that makes up the amalgam fillings increases the strengthening properties, creating a long lasting, durable filling.
  • Composite fillings are white or tooth-colored since they are made of resin that is matched to your tooth color. This creates a more natural look to your dental health.

Whichever you decide when it comes to filling options, we can help you get the customized, strong solution that you desire. Call, email, or stop by Peninsula Family Dental Center today to learn more about dental fillings!
