Composite Fillings in Keizer, OR
Improvements in composite, or tooth-colored, fillings have made them an excellent restorative option. Once used largely for front teeth, stronger materials have made them appropriate for back teeth, which must withstand major chewing force. If your teeth are decayed or chipped, Dr. Anderson and his staff in Keizer, OR, can restore your teeth and improve your smile.
Choose Composite Fillings
Composite fillings can be a preferable alternative to traditional amalgam (metal) fillings. Made up of an acrylic and ceramic compound, they blend with the natural color of your tooth. While they can be more expensive, Dr. Anderson frequently recommends them, particularly for younger patients.
Traditional amalgam fillings are made from an alloy containing mercury. Although the American Dentistry Association, or ADA, continues to approve amalgam as a safe and long-lasting option, many patients and professionals prefer composite when appropriate. Dr. Anderson and his staff can help answer any questions you may have about the differences between the two.
