Will Dr. Hannaman and Dr. Hebert do white or tooth-colored fillings?
Dr. Hannaman and Dr. Hebert perform amalgam (silver) restorations (fillings) as well as white (tooth-colored) fillings (more common). Depending on the location of the filling and the tooth structure involved will dictate which type of material should be used.
Is one better than the other?
Both materials have advantages and disadvantages depending on where they are placed and the amount of tooth structure that remains to be restored. Your dentist will explain to you what his recommendation is as to what material would be most appropriate to use. Contact our Lake Charles LA dental office today to schedule your appointment!
