The Right Filling for You

Cavities affect at least one permanent tooth in over 90% of adults in the United States, making it the most common chronic dental issue of all. The small holes that develop in teeth are caused by tooth decay, which in turn is caused by oral bacteria that slip past compromised tooth enamel. Tooth fillings are typically the preferable choice for mild to moderate cavities, and at Central Park Dentistry, we offer a choice of filling materials to suit your individual needs.

Metal or Composite?

Fillings work because they fill the cavities that tooth decay leaves in your teeth, strengthening the tooth and preventing oral bacteria from infecting more of it. For molars and teeth that are exposed to heavy bite pressure, Dr. Hansen may suggest a metal amalgam filling. For more visible front teeth, tooth-colored composite resin may prove a better, more cosmetically appealing choice.
