While in the past tooth fillings were mostly made of amalgam, silver, or gold, modern dental practices now use a composite resin filling that can be color matched to the tooth in which it is placed. Tooth colored fillings are perfect for all ages and useful because if they do come out, they are not toxic to the body. Amalgam fillings of the past sometimes contained mercury, and were likely to cause problems if swallowed, however tooth colored fillings are much safer.
Why we use tooth colored fillings:
- Color matched
- No metals
- Dries quickly
- Lasts for years
- Great for cavities
- Easy to apply
