Tried and Trusted Amalgam Fillings
Top Rated Amalgam Fillings in Las Vegas, NV
Tried and Trusted FillingsDental Amalgam is a commonly used dental filling that has been used for over 150 years. It is a mixture of mercury with at least one other metal. Amalgam has many advantages over other restorative material, such as low cost, strength, durability, and bacteriostatic effects.
Strong and Safe MaterialsAmalgam is used in dentistry for a number of reasons. It is relatively easy to use and manipulate during placement; it remains soft for a short time so it can be packed to fill any irregular volume, and then forms a hard compound. Amalgam possesses greater longevity than other direct restorative materials, such as composite. On average, most amalgam restorations serve for 10 to 12 years, whereas resin-based composites serve for about half that time. However, with recent improvements in composite material science and a better understanding of the technique-sensitivity of placement, it should be noted that this difference is decreasing.
Other Safe OptionsThere are circumstances in which composite (white fillings) serves better than amalgam; when amalgam is not indicated, or when a more conservative preparation would be beneficial, composite is the recommended restorative material. These situations would include small occlusal restorations, in which amalgam would require the removal of a more sound tooth structure, as well as in “enamel sites beyond the height of contour.” The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs has concluded that both amalgam and composite materials are considered safe and effective for tooth restoration.

This dental office was amazing. The front desk lady Danielle was so nice. And my treatment advisor Holly was very knowledgeable and gave me a great deal on my deep cleaning. && Dr.B was so gentle and took his time.
Super fast service!!! The longest I had to wait was the 5 minutes between the dentist and the credit advisor. Everyone was super nice and very professional. The last time I was there was over 10 years ago and nothing has changed. Their a little expensive if you don't have insurance, but it's well worth it for the quality of service you receive.
Dr. Han is amazing! I need a lot of work done to my mouth because a couple dentist messed up and I quit going for far too long. He has been great throughout the entire experience, so much that I just made my daughter an appointment and made sure to book it with him. He explains everything and even tho he is very busy bouncing back and forth he never makes you feel rushed when you're asking questions. Thank you Dr. Han!
