Dentist Cedar Park - Dental Fillings
When the enamel on your teeth gets destroyed, tooth decay sets in and this will result in requiring some sort of dental filling to fix the problem. Once the enamel on your tooth is broken down by plaque it opens the door for cavities to form, which is really just a little hole in your tooth.

The good news is that you have several options when it comes to dental fillings. Dental fillings now come in several options, from the traditional amalgam (silver) to the newer porcelain and composite fillings that offer a natural-looking alternative for those that prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Silver Amalgam Fillings

Silver amalgam fillings are made from a combination of metals including silver, tin, copper and mercury. These are the fillings that are usually referred to as "silver" fillings and these fillings have been used for over 100 years by dentists because they are extremely durable and long lasting, as well as being less expensive than composite fillings.

Composite Dental Fillings

Composite fillings, also referred to as tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite of resins, and are designed to provide good durability. They are often used on the teeth that are more visible because this type of filling is more natural looking.

Our Reviews

"Dr. Blackwell is a great dentist and I would highly recommend him and his staff for your dental needs."

"My whole family has been coming to Dr. Blackwell for several years now and we've always received great service. The front desk gets me squared away and the hygienist's take good care of us. Dr. Blackwell will tell you the truth and get it done right for a good price. It's a relief to have a dependable service."

I (and my family) have been seeing Dr Blackwell for over 20 years, I can not sing enough praises for Dr Blackwell and his staff. They do not over sell you like many of the chains do, Dr Blackwell is always upfront about what I need and more importantly, what I don't. It is true that at times it can take a little bit of time to get in, but to know that you are treated well and not oversold, its worth the wait for me.
