Composite & Amalgam Restorations

Composite and Amalgam Restorations Complete Your Smile

Composite and amalgam restorations replace missing tooth structure. If your teeth have experienced severe tooth decay, and external trauma, then they may have chipped, broken, or fractured.

Prosthodontist and restorative dentist Dr. Gary Horblitt can fix all these issues and more with composite and amalgam restorations. He has almost three decades of expertise with restorations, and will assess what kind of composite and amalgam restoration suits your dental problems.
Teeth must be prepared for composite and amalgam restorations. This may involve cutting the tooth to remove parts that are decayed or weakened. Once the tooth is ready for its restoration, it’s time for the filling.

Composite Restorations

One of the main benefits of a composite restoration is that the resin is color-matched to your natural teeth. Composite restorations are a good cosmetic solution to fill in decayed or broken teeth.

Amalgam Restorations

An amalgam restoration is easy to apply, and has strength and durability. It’s also great for the budget. An amalgam restoration also has longevity. It’s an excellent restorative option for back teeth, where chewing forces are greatest.
