Types of Dental Fillings in Richmond
Dr. Cichoracki offers several different types of tooth fillings including:
Dental Amalgam is a commonly used dental filling that has been used for over 150 years. It is a mixture of mercury with at least one other metal. Amalgam has many advantages over other restorative materials, such as low cost, strength, durability, and bacteriostatic effects.
Composite White Tooth Fillings
There are circumstances in which composite (white fillings) serve better than amalgam. For example, when a more conservative preparation is beneficial, composite is the recommended restorative material.
The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs has concluded that both amalgam and composite materials are considered safe and effective for tooth restoration.
How Much Does a White Tooth Filling Cost?
White fillings are generally a bit more expensive than amalgam fillings. However, they offer a natural-looking solution that blends in with natural teeth, which is highly beneficial for your smile’s aesthetics. Our dental team will provide you with a detailed cost breakdown for white fillings prior to treatment after we examine your teeth and determine your filling needs.
