When it comes to types of fillings for cavities, patients have lots of options!
Did you know that you have your “fill” of options when it comes to selecting different types of fillings for cavities?
Silver is no longer the “gold standard”, as today’s patients can choose from an array of dental filling materials.
Based on the location of your cavity, its severity, and your dental insurance, you and your Campbelltown dentist can determine which of the following options works best to address all of your needs.
Dental Filling Options
So, now that you know you have options let’s explore the different types of dental cavity fillings below.
Amalgams are still the most durable option. Many patients still opt for metal fillings for cavities and damages in back molars since these teeth can’t be easily seen when they smile. Metal fillings are also the most affordable option in most cases.
Composite resin fillings can be specially coloured to blend in with the natural colour of your tooth, which makes them a popular choice for repairing front teeth and other areas that are visible when you smile.
Porcelain fillings are the most costly of all of the filling options. They last longer than composite resin. Dentists more often use porcelain for worn or abraded teeth than for treating cavities.

It’s best to choose the material that suits your needs the best.
