Should I Get a White or Silver Filling?

Should I Get a White or Silver Filling?

This is one of the most common questions I get in my practice.  The choice between a white or silver filling is a question to discuss with your dentist.  In general, most of my patients choose a white (composite) restoration as it is nearly impossible for a white filling to be seen when a person is smiling, talking, laughing, chewing or yawning. The esthetics far outweigh the slight increase in cost when compared to a silver filling.

A white filling  should always be used in teeth that are located in the “smile zone”.  Next time you need a new filling or a replacement of a filling, ask about composite restorations.  Please contact me for a complimentary consultation.  I look forward to meeting you!
