Do you need to restore your smile with a dental filling? If so, Dr. James Thomason and our dental team are more than happy to help you. Generally, fillings are used to repair teeth that have been attacked and damaged by tooth decay. For your convenience, we proudly offer composite and amalgam fillings at North Fork Dental Care.

Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations that can repair your smile all while maintaining its beauty. These fillings are made from ceramic, resin, and plastic and they are generally used for the teeth that are visible in your smile. However, you can still use these fillings to repair teeth in the back of your mouth. Because of recent improvements in the dental industry, the fillings are now strong enough to withstand heavy chewing forces.

Amalgam fillings are dark-colored restorations that can repair your chompers and provide dependable results for years. These fillings are made from mercury, silver, copper, and tin. They are typically used for the back teeth because the main compound is mercury, which means the product can endure high amounts of pressure all while keeping your teeth in top-notch condition.
