Why Should I Consider White Fillings?
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings can be natural looking. Many people are more conscious about the way they look, so they don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile. Composite white fillings are a mixture of powdered glass and plastic resin, sometimes referred to as white, plastic, or tooth-colored fillings. It is used for fillings, inlays, veneers, partial and complete crowns, or to repair portions of broken teeth.
Composite White Filling Advantages:
treatment completed in a single visit
does not corrode
resistance to further decay is moderate and easy to find
strong and durable restorations
maximum amount of tooth preserved
frequency of repair or replacement is low to moderate
generally holds up well to the forces of biting depending on product used
Is It Worth Replacing My Amalgam Fillings With White Ones?
It is usually best to change fillings only when Newmarket restorative dentist, Dr. Saeed Meshksar, decides that an old filling needs replacing. If so, you can ask to have it replaced in a tooth-colored material at Eagle Family Dentistry.
Are White Fillings as Good As Silver Amalgam Fillings?
New composite white fillings use high-tech materials that are comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is placed in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. Dr. Saeed Meshksar can advise you on how long your fillings should last.
