Commonly Asked Questions About White Fillings
What are metal-free fillings?
They're fillings made of dental bonding, and also called white fillings, or composite fillings. They're an alternative to the traditional gray metal fillings. Being white, they can be made to match your natural tooth shade. Mercury is one of the elements in metal amalgam fillings, and is regarded by many as a source of harm and ill-health throughout the body. If you have metal fillings, you can get them replaced with white fillings.
What are the advantages of white fillings?
Am I a good candidate for white fillings?
Yes. If you need a filling, you can choose to have a metal-free one, although not all dentists offer this choice. If the decay in your tooth is extensive, you might need a crown , in which case you wouldn't be a candidate for any sort of filling, metal or white.
