Fillings in Albuquerque, NM
Dental fillings are placed in teeth where a dentist has had to remove tooth structure due to decay or fracture. In recent years filling materials have been substantially improved by many technological advancements. Although silver amalgam was the dominant choice years ago, today we have several other preferred options for tooth restoration including tooth colored composite filling materials and cementable resins and porcelains.
The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure. Fillings material are shaped to match the look and feel of natural teeth.
