Are you dealing with tooth decay and wondering which type of dental filling is best for you? At our Belleville, IL dentist’s office, we have two great options.
Amalgam is a blend of different metals which has been used in dental fillings for more than 150 years. It is tried, true, safe, and strong. We believe this is the most effective way to repair a cavity, and is highly recommended for fillings near the back of your mouth. It is also the most cost-effective solution. In fact, Dr. Feder even has a few himself!
That said, we also offer a beautifully crafted tooth-colored option. As such, we wanted to share a video link from our friends at the ADA, in which they explain these modern composite fillings, and why a patient might want to explore this option.
Check it out below, and then be sure to schedule your next dental checkup with Dr. Feder by calling us today at 618‑219‑1412.
