Amalgam is most commonly referred to as “metal” or “silver” fillings, which contain a mix of metals including mercury. Composite fillings are known as white or tooth-colored fillings.
Note: 1st Family Dental does not use amalgam material for fillings and dental restorations. Instead, we use composite resin material at all of our locations for fillings and restorations. We made this choice because we believe composite material, also known as “white” or “tooth colored” fillings, to be an effective treatment option for our patients
