When decay is detected in earlier stages, Dr. Cye Jekel generally recommends a composite filling. This is a tooth-colored resin that is placed in the prepared cavity. This material eliminates the ability for a filling to be noticeable and prevents further decay. This is an aesthetic alternative to the traditional amalgam (silver) filling and bonds well to tooth structure to provide years of function and durability.
