Tooth Colored Fillings - Dental Fillings in Rapid City
Silver fillings are made of amalgam, which is a mixture of mercury with silver, tin and sometimes copper. A filling is used to replace part of a tooth that has been lost due to decay or accidental damage. Silver fillings are very strong due to the amalgam that is used to make them. This means that they are very good for filling back teeth that have been heavily worn away by chewing. Also a filling rebuilds the tooth, which will enable you to chew and can end toothache or prevent toothache developing.

In 2008, on a routine visit to see Dr. Samuelson, he discovered a spot on my lip. He discovered this during his routine oral cancer screening exam. On further examination the spot was determined to be malignant. I had the spot removed by my Dermatologist. The Dermatologist stated, if not detected, this would have entered my lymph system.
