Traditionally cavities were repaired by removing all the decay from the tooth and replacing it with a silver filling. Dentistry has evolved and now most patients prefer white, tooth colored fillings. These fillings are made of a composite resin which becomes hard and provides better aesthetic results. Your tooth looks completely natural because the color of the filling matches the color of your tooth.
The old traditional amalgam (silver) fillings are quickly going out of favor with many patients. In some cases this is due to concern over mercury content. Most commonly, people prefer the more natural appearance of composite fillings. Composite fillings are similar in texture and color to actual teeth and are very hard, thus making them unlikely to crack. They are 100% mercury-free.
Using color-match technology, teeth with white fillings are virtually indistinguishable from surrounding teeth.
