Newer dental fillings include ceramic and resin compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These materials can be used on front teeth for a natural appearance and also back teeth. They are bonded into place and have no mercury or metal like fillings of old. The materials we use at Angstadt Dental Lancaster are of the highest quality and top ranked composite-resins according to “The Clinicians Report” as well as other highly rated research articles.
Note that there are two different kinds of fillings: direct and indirect. Direct fillings are placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit. Indirect fillings generally require two or more visits and are called “inlays” or “onlays” . They are used when a tooth has too much damage to support a filling but not enough to necessitate a crown. They are a great way to preserve tooth structure and be as conservative as can be when possible.
