Choice of metal or white filling materials

Clontarf Dental Practice - Fillings


Removal of decay and restoration of tooth or repair of broken tooth to preserve oral health, function and aesthetics.

Fillings are also used to protect the roots of teeth where excessive wear has occurred due to overenthusiastic brushing or incorrect techniques of brushing.

We use both amalgam (metal) and composite (white) filling materials. The choice of materials is influenced by the position and the size of the cavity being filled as well as by appearance and of course patient choice.
