At Palmerston Dental we offer choices when it comes to what resorative material is used for a filling.  Tooth-colored fillings made of resin can be bonded to your teeth for a more natural-looking effect. Composite (resin) fillings are virtually undetectable and require only a single appointment to apply. For some patients we continue to recommend amalgam fillings as they can be more durable and less prone to decay so therefore may be a better choice. Talking with one of our Dentists will enable to you make an educated choice.
