At Taunton Oral Health Center, we offer two filling options for those who have minor tooth decay, fractures or cracks. Silver fillings (amalgams) and tooth-colored fillings (composites) are both available and effective materials for your dental fillings. Both composite fillings and amalgam fillings have their own benefits; during your consultation with one of our dentists, you will discuss which filling material will be right for you. At your appointment, the dentist will remove the tooth decay, clean the tooth, and fill the tooth with the composite or amalgam filling. For more information, please call our office.
