Benefits of Getting White Fillings

Posted on 5/25/2018 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Dental Fillings Beautiful Smiles CA 95695-2986If a cavity is not taken care of by one of the professionals here in our office, it can develop into more serious tooth decay, which will require more extensive dental work and cost more money. It is very important to have regular checkups where the dentist will see if there is a cavity present.

Once you are told you have a cavity, you will have to get it filled and you have a couple of options.

Silver Fillings

For decades, dentists have used silver fillings - a combination of several metals - to fill cavities. If you are old enough, you probably have one or more of them in your mouth.

Recently, people started to get really excited about the idea of using white fillings instead since they were so much more difficult to detect. However, silver fillings are strong and durable and can tolerate use very well. That is part of why they have been in use for so many years.

White Fillings

White fillings are also known as dental composite, the tooth-colored resin that the dentist applies when fixing a cavity. The composite resin is made of a combination of plastics and fillers that bond to the surface of the tooth.

In recent years, these white fillings have become very popular because they can be made to match the color of your teeth and aren't as noticeable as the silver fillings. They are also less expensive than the silver variety.

One of the other benefits of getting white fillings is that they are more versatile, as they can be used to restore the shape of a tooth, while the same can't be said of the silver fillings. If you have a cavity that needs to be filled, ask us about the benefits of getting white fillings.
