There are many materials that can be used successfully to restore (fill) cavities in teeth. The two major types of fillings that we use are silver filling and white fillings. Silver fillings have been used successfully for decades, and while these types of restorations are safe, sturdy and reliable, white fillings (composite fillings) have multiple advantages over silver fillings, which is why they are our filling material of choice
Some of the reasons that we prefer white filings for most teeth are:
The technology behind composite fillings is always improving. Today’s composites are very polishable and more wear resistant than composites of the past, making your smile look even better. And there are similar materials that release Fluoride, which has applications in patients who need to balance esthetics and a high cavities rate. As every clinical situation is different, ultimately we will decide with you which treatment modality works best given your dental needs.

My wife and I had our first cleanings with Dallas Dental today and were extremely pleased with the consideration of Dr. McMiller, staff and Niki, who did our cleanings. No discomfort whatsoever and we both have sensitive spots in our mouths. Best cleanings ever. Very caring office.
I've never liked going to the dentist, the idea of needles in my mouth frightened me. My visit today was absolutely amazing, my hygienist (Nikki) made me feel at ease. When the Doctor came in to numb me, I didn't really feel a thing. I will continue to go there and I'm making my daughter an appointment as well.
Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on a same day appointment and called to check up a few hours later. I highly recommend using this dentist office. It will not be a dreaded experience.
I do not do well with people dealing with my mouth. I have never met a group so sensitive to my comfort while still doing an amazing job. No, most of the things that must be done at a dental office are not going to be fun, but this group makes it so much easier. I will recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much.
