White fillings are aesthetically-pleasing
White fillings that are made from dental composite or porcelain mimic natural tooth shade. When smiling, it is not obvious that any fillings are present. In contrast, amalgam fillings, which are made of metals, are noticeable to others.
When comparing white fillings and amalgam ones, white fillings are often pictured as weaker and less durable amalgam fillings. Although metal fillings placed in the back teeth for chewing power are stronger, white composite fillings offer a durable blend to restore tooth function, improve bite and enhance facial expression. Porcelain fillings may be used in the smile zone for a beautiful smile.
Treatment with white fillings
The benefit of having white fillings is that the fillings can be placed and set within minutes, allowing for immediate tooth restoration. Traditional amalgam fillings usually require longer treatment times and recovery as they do not include modern light activation materials and technologies.
