Dental fillings are the most common and best way to stop cavities and increase the structural integrity of natural teeth. Filings are available in two materials: metallic, amalgam fillings and white, composite fillings. While dark, mercury-metal amalgam tooth fillings are the oldest form of dental fillings, there are a number of reasons to upgrade to white, composite fillings.
Besides being a far more attractive and natural looking alternative to metal fillings, composite fillings provide a more precise fit and reduce future dental decay when applied correctly. Thankfully, with Dr. Bernstein’s years of education, training, and experience in the field as both a practitioner and teacher of proper technique, there’s no better dentist to replace old, metal fillings with beautiful, natural looking composite fillings.
