With the advent of modern technology, white fillings or porcelain fillings are now a great alternative to silver amalgam.
These white composite fillings require less removal of tooth structure. The size of the hole made for filling can be dramatically made smaller with composites. They bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure. This helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
Another great advantage is that composite white fillings for teeth are long-lasting and repairable. They come in a variety of colors that can be matched to the patient’s own teeth color. In short, they offer strength, durability and give you a beautiful white smile!
