At Davenport Dental Group, we fill a lot of cavities. It’s one of our most routine procedures. Not so long ago, all fillings were made of metal, which is, of course, highly visible against your white teeth.

While we still do offer metal, or amalgam, fillings as an option, today we primarily use a tooth-colored composite resin to fill cavities. This material is strong, lasting, and because it’s perfectly matched to the shade of your tooth, invisible in your mouth.

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about composite fillings. Then schedule an appointment with Davenport Dental Group. You may reach us online or call either one of our Laredo, TX offices: Junction Drive (956-242-6745) or Winfield (956-517-2695).
