Modern dental filling procedures are easy, quick, and inexpensive. At North Rivers Dental Associates, you can choose from many different filling materials depending on your preferences and the location of the filling in your mouth. Consider these different types of fillings:

  • Tooth-colored (composite) fillings, which give you a completely natural look. The composite material can be color-matched to your existing teeth, providing a virtually invisible, harmonious smile.
  • Glass ionomer fillings, which can be matched to the color of your existing teeth; these fillings are usually placed near the gumline, in areas where you don’t need chewing strength.
  • Porcelain, which is cosmetically beautiful and light reflective; these fillings look like your natural teeth and are virtually invisible.

With so many choices, it can be difficult to know which filling material is best for you.
