When decay has eaten away at a tooth, a hole remains  Today there are two types of fillings, silver (amalgam) fillings and white (composite) fillings.

At the office of Mary Peebles-Turner, DDS we like composite/resin fillings for their natural appearance and the near perfect color match we can get with your teeth.

In this photograph the back two teeth used to be filled with dark silver-mercury fillings and we replaced them with these beautiful bonded restorations.

It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth adjusts to the new filling.
