Dental Fillings. Silver mercury fillings also known as dental amalgams have been in use since the 19th century. They are composed of a mixture of silver, tin, copper and mercury. Composite fillings, first introduced in the 1960’s have undergone many generational improvements and are now both strong and cosmetic alternatives to silver mercury fillings.
Preserving Tooth Structure. Maintaining tooth structure increases the prognosis of the tooth if the restoration should fail in the future. It is important to maintain as much of the original tooth structure in order to preserve its integrity, strength, and reduce postoperative sensitivity.
