Decay and cracked or broken tooth are common reasons for a detnal filling. We offer a couple options:  white tooth resin and the traditional silver amalgam. While many practices only offer the white tooth resins these days, we continue to offer the silver amalgam for several reasons: it’s often more cost effective, quicker and more convenient, and it may last longer. It’s your choice. We don’t take your right to choose away simply because it’s more convenience for our dental practice. Providing the best dental care according to your needs is far more important!
