Fillings White Vs. Silver

Fillings are normally placed when you have a very small cavity that needs to be killed before it spreads.

White fillings are a type of tooth colored resin composite material that bonds to the tooth. The other type is a mercury filling that is silver and sometimes discolors the teeth, We recommend removing all silver fillings and replacing them with white composite for esthetic looks and oral health. Besides discoloring the teeth silver fillings are hard like rocks in the tooth and can possibly chip or fracture your good tooth. While composite (white fillings) are flexible and have less chance of damaging a good tooth. Our office cares about your oral health there for we only uses the best white composite material for your fillings.
