White fillings are the most common of all dental procedures. But with the advances in dental technology, fillings today look more natural than before in addition to effectively serving their purpose. Some people tend to get conscious if they have the old type silver fillings. These fillings can be rather visible, especially when the person laughs or even smile.Book online
Compared to silver or amalgam fillings, white fillings have a shorter life span. Fortunately, there are white fillings today that contain the same substances as the amalgam, making them last for a longer time. Of course, how long your white fillings can last depends on their location in your mouth and how your teeth interact with them.
Many people will typically consider replacing their amalgams with white fillings for aesthetic purposes. Most dentists also recommend it, but only if the silver filling needs to be replaced. If your dentist advises it, then replace your amalgams with a tooth-coloured filling.
Some dentists have difficulties placing white fillings in the teeth at the back and choose to use amalgam instead. If patients want to have natural-looking teeth, they could opt-in for inlays or crowns, which is considerably more expensive and requires the removal of a larger area of the tooth.
