Traditional dental fillings in Midtown Manhattan are the silver amalgam fillings. These fillings are the strongest and are best for use in the back teeth of the mouth that need to withstand strong chewing forces. Traditional amalgam fillings also last longer than the newer composite fillings. Composite porcelain fillings are useful for providing an invisible filling for a tooth. Porcelain fillings are used as inlays and onlays so that a portion of a tooth can be filled in a way that cannot be readily seen. However this type of filling is not as strong as a silver amalgam filling. These porcelain fillings also may not last as long. But porcelain and composite fillings are the filling of choice when the cavity is in a tooth or a part of a tooth that is easily seen by others when you smile or open your mouth to speak. An additional benefit of porcelain fillings is that less amount of the tooth needs to be removed in order to make room for a porcelain or composite filling. Silver amalgam and porcelain ceramic fillings all have an important role to play when it comes to dental fillings in Midtown Manhattan.
