Cavities are not uncommon
The thought of having a tooth filled is somewhat daunting, but you can take some comfort in knowing that you are not alone: approximately 92% of Americans have had at least one cavity in his or her lifetime. Suffice it to say that dental fillings are normal for most people and because of this, we have honed this craft to a precision.
Dental fillings are not one-size-fits-all and they consist of many different alloys or mixtures from silver amalgam, composite resin, plastic, porcelain and gold. At New Generation Dentistry, we do not offer any metal alloy restoration for fillings or crowns.
Keep in mind that all teeth cannot accept the same filling so this will vary, depending on which tooth is affected. Size, location, opposing teeth—all of these will determine which type filling will work best for your particular situation. Book an appointment or give us a call today, and our dentists in Mission Viejo will be happy to discuss the options with you.
