Sutton Dentist Explains The Benefits Of White Fillings

27th June, 2012

There is a huge craze by people to get the best out of there smile, and why not?  There is nothing like a beautiful and healthy smile to get you noticed. Many things can impact how you feel about the way in which your smile looks including the way you have your teeth filled.

 Old grey, amalgam fillings can tend to make people conscious of the way they smile or open their mouths and many would much prefer more natural looking white fillings. But this does come with a caution as more dentists would rather you replace the old ones only when they need to be.

Still, considering you are paying for the luxury of better looking teeth, you can make the decision to change them when you want to. Before making a decision you should take all the information into consideration. Composite fillings aren’t normally considered to be as durable as amalgam as they are made generally from composite resins and glass particles- they can be fragile, fall out easier and are not that good at resisting the forces you put your teeth through on a daily basis. But the materials that they are made from are changing all the time and slowly are getting up to the levels of strength normally associated with amalgam.
