To tell you more, we are happy to share the following dental filling facts:

-There are many different types of dental fillings, but composite resin and amalgam dental fillings are the most often used.

-Composite dental fillings are white and they blend in with your teeth. These fillings are often used to repair teeth in the smile.

-Amalgam dental fillings are silver and are made of a variety of different metals. These fillings are often used to repair teeth in the back of the mouth.
