Dental fillings are done to remove caivties and the space that is created by removing a cavity is filled with restorative material. Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, include gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite. With the advent of the newest technologies in dental science, today's state-of-the-art restorative materials include ceramic and the latest composite materials. These materials are not only strong and durable, but restore the look of natural teeth and are very aesthetically pleasing.
Dr. Jardosh does not use amalgam or metal colored fillings. We use strictly tooth colored fillings to replace cavities as they are more natural looking and are more conservative to the patient's tooth.
