Dental Fillings

Tooth decay is caused by the demineralizing of the tooth enamel and destruction of hard tissues of acid from bacterial fermentation. 
A dental filling is the underlining rudimentary procedure of Dental restoration in the art of dentistry that's sole purposes is to treat tooth decay. The reason a Dentists would need to perform a Dental Filling on a tooth is when a tooth has a crack or a cavity. The objective is to restore your tooth's structure and prevent future structural damage to your teeth by plaque. The Dentists at metrotown provides a variety of dental filling options including those that are free of mercury or amalgam, and composite resin. That leads to the question...

What are the differences between amalgam and composite resin fillings? 

The differences between these two fillings come down to asthetics and price. Amalgam fillings are silver in color, and is relatively unexpensive. Composite resin fillings can be made to match the colour of your other teeth giving your teeth a more natural appearance; however, these fillings typically cost a bit more as they provide more value to you.
