Fillings

At Ocean Atlantic Dental in Virginia Beach, we provide both silver (amalgam) fillings and tooth-colored (composite) fillings. Amalgams have been used to restore damaged teeth for years and can be the more affordable option, while tooth-colored restorations will provide a more aesthetically pleasing look to your smile. You can discuss which type of filling material is right for you or your child during your appointment with Dr. Throckmorton. This appointment will also involve placing the filling, where Dr. Throckmorton will:

  • Remove damage and decay from the tooth
  • Clean the tooth
  • Place the silver or tooth-colored filling
  • Shape and polish the filling

If you would like more information on tooth-colored restorations, amalgam fillings, or general and family dentistry, please call or visit us soon. We look forward to answering your questions!
