A dentist will employ a filling after a cavity is removed from one or more teeth. The most common type of filling is silver in colour (known as an amalgam). What are some of the advantages of opting for a composite filling that mimics the natural colour of your tooth?
- These fillings are nearly invisible to the naked eye.
- Less of the tooth needs to be removed when affixing a composite filling.
- Such fillings tend to last longer than more traditional options.
“Your amalgam fillings shouldn’t need to be replaced unless there’s damage present.”
