White Fillings

Amalgam vs White fillings

Natural tooth colored fillings, also referred to as composite fillings, are a substitute for traditional metal amalgam fillings. During preparation for the composite filling, only the decay is cleared away, and not any tooth structure that is in good shape. The composite filling is affixed to the tooth surface, thereby restoring its innate fortitude. Many patients have observed that the sensitivity of their teeth decreases when getting composite fillings placed, in comparison to amalgam fillings.
