Restorations

Teeth that have been affected by tooth decay (caries or cavities) require a filling.

There are many different types of fillings, including:

Also known as silver fillings, are comprised of a mixture of mercury (45 to 50 percent), and an alloy of silver, tin, and copper (50 to 55 percent). When it is combined with other materials in dental amalgam, mercury's chemical nature changes and it is no longer considered harmful to the body.

A ceramic material is bonded to the front of teeth to change the tooth's color, size, and/or shape.

Porcelain Veneers:

A "cap" that covers a cracked or broken tooth, unfixed by a filling, to approximate its normal size and shape

Crown:
