Composite fillings are dental solutions for certain degrees of tooth decay or cracks in your teeth. A composite filling is a tooth-colored mixture often made of plastic and glass used to restore decayed and damaged teeth. These fillings can also be used in other cosmetic procedures and to reshape teeth.

Silver Amalgam Fillings
If your teeth get damaged due to an accident or injury or if you have a cavity, we may recommend a filling. At St. Pete Oral Health Center, we specialize in silver amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings. Silver amalgam fillings are made of liquid elemental mercury and a powered alloy of silver, copper, and tin. These fillings are placed into the tooth to fill any cavities or cracks on the tooth’s surface.
Silver fillings are one of the least expensive kinds of fillings, but are stronger than many other types of fillings and are designed to last a lifetime with proper care.
