Wouldn't You Rather Have White Fillings?
Of course, no fillings at all would be the ideal, but if you must have a filling, your smile will look more natural and beautiful with a bonded white filling.
Patients at The Smile Centre now overwhelmingly prefer white fillings, not only because of the way they look and feel, but because they strengthen weak teeth.
In response to growing concern about the safety of mercury (silver) fillings, we often replace these fillings with mercury-free white fillings.
In the past, white fillings were not as strong as less attractive amalgam but, with today's technology, white fillings can easily withstand the stress required to serve even as a filling in a back tooth. And besides looking better, a tooth filled with white composite is more resistant to fracture.
