Choose the Best Dental Filling For You

In the past, your options for dental fillings were pretty limited. Even today, some dentists still only offer one type of filling. Fortunately, our team at Sioux Falls Smiles understand that every patient comes to us with unique needs. That’s why we’re proud to give you a choice between two methods for treating cavities.

Based on any number of factors, we can help you decide which option is best for your individual needs:

  • Metal Fillings – Amalgam is a blend of different metals that tend to be more affordable, longer lasting, and more durable against a strong bite force than composite fillings.
  • Composite Fillings – If you have a metal allergy, prefer a biocompatible option, or are interested in maintaining the brightness of your smile, composite fillings match the color of your natural tooth, making this a more seamless restorative option.

If your tooth decay is more extensive, you may need a different restorative solution, such as an inlay, onlay, or dental crown. These options will cover more of your tooth for a more secure and successful repair.

When you have a cavity, choose the treatment that’s right for you with tooth fillings in Sioux Falls. Call us today at 605-638-9986 for an appointment.
