Are you embarrassed of your smile because of silver fillings? Composite fillings can give you that natural look back because they are tooth-colored filings. The composite resin is matched to the color of neighboring teeth so no one knows the difference. Some of the advantages of composite fillings over silver or amalgam fillings are…
- There is no metal or mercury in composite fillings
- The new composite filling will match your natural teeth unlike silver fillings
- Composite fillings feel more natural
- Your tooth structure is strengthened by composite fillings
There are side effects to the traditional silver and amalgam fillings.
- Metal expands and contracts with temperature change so it can become weakened and crack.
- If it does crack, mercury will leak and discolor your other teeth.
Having composite fillings avoid the above two problems. Your old silver filling can be replaced in order to avoid any problems before they might happen.
