At South Texas Dental, patients and their dentists have a variety of excellent choices when it comes to the dental restoration, or filling, of worn, damaged or decayed teeth.
We can use the proven, traditional materials, such as gold, base metal alloys and dental amalgam, which have the strength and durability that make them useful for situations such as dental fillings in the back teeth, where they’re basically out of sight and where chewing forces are greatest.
Or we can choose one of the newer composite types, and this lets you factor in such variables as color, performance, durability, longevity and cost.
Your South Texas Dental professional will be happy to discuss the options open to you, and together we can decide on the kind of dental filling material that will be best for you.
And remember, fillings, like most of our other services, are covered by Medicaid, CHIP and most dental insurance.
