Composite Filling Appearance

If you are having a cavity filled, you might be wondering what is the best dental filling choice, amalgam or composite filling? As your dental experts, we here at Zara Dental Services in Houston want to take a minute or two to explain the difference between these two types of fillings.

When it comes to safety and appearance, composite fillings seem to have the upper hand over amalgam fillings. This is not only due to the fact that composite fillings have a more natural and pleasing tooth-like appearance, but also because composite fillings are devoid of metals such as mercury that have often been attributed to toxicity or high sensitivity in teeth.


Composite Filling Durability

With regard to durability, amalgams used to be more durable that their composite counterparts. However, recent strides in the dental industry have greatly improved the strength of the resin materials used in a composite filling. Also, when using a composite filling, the dentist typically does not have to do as much preparation to the tooth, which serves to keep the surrounding tooth strong as well.

All in all, the success of any filling procedure is greatly dependent on the experience and skill of the dentist performing it. That’s why you should trust the highly qualified dental experts at Zara Dental Services for all of your filling needs.

Composite Filling Cost

Cost of your composite filling may usually be covered by your dental insurance or extended dental coverage. However if you don’t have insurance or If you are looking for more information about the cost of a specific service, please contact one of our expert Treatment Coordinators for help. They can help with putting together an affordable payment plan so you can get the dental treatment that you need.
