Do you have unsightly gaps between your teeth? Or you are embarrassed to smile freely when meeting people due to your chipped tooth? Whether it is your broken whites or you are trying to make them look more even or straight, you need to choose the finest dental fillings to regain your natural smile and appearance. The advancement of dental science has resulted in the discovery of tooth colored fillings, also known as white fillings that help in restoring the natural look and feel of your tooth structure.

Besides solving problems like fracture or decay, these products are also used by cosmetic dentists to alter the color, size and shape of your teeth.

Amalgam is Long-lasting

As far as Amalgam fillings are concerned, they are made of two components – one is silver and another is mercury. You will also find lesser amounts of copper and tin. You can choose these because they last for 10-15 years. Moreover, they are affordable and according to dentists, are easy to work with. Amalgam is the second best alternative to gold when it comes to dental fillings because they are the least expensive. However, consult with a dentist before selecting any product.

There are some apprehensions about the use of silver colored fillings having mercury. It is important to note here that according to the American Dental Association, mercury used in this product is safe and stable. However, there are arguments regarding the absorption of mercury. Then, genetics and other factors like chewing gum, teeth grinding and the number of fillings used, determine the amount of mercury absorbed.

Amalgam Fillings Cure Tooth Cracks

These fillings are done in such a manner that they fill cracks in your tooth successfully. The greatest benefit of is that they last for several years. The use of fluoride makes your natural whites more cavity resistant. Amalgam use however, makes your teeth stronger and can endure chewing forces. This means you can chew or munch the foods you like to eat.

Use Composite Resin for Children

If your child has developed cavities due to overindulgence in chocolates or candies, it’s a matter of concern. In such a situation, you need to use non-mercury fillings for treating tooth decay. Composite resin is the best alternative in this regard. The progression of dental technology has made these durable, easy to work with and aesthetically perfect.

As far as the color is concerned, they match very closely with the natural whites and can be easily used on the front teeth. You may be wondering why amalgam is not suitable for your children. Since amalgam fillings have mercury; some children may be sensitive to it. This is the reason resin composite is the preferred alternative for kids because it is not only safe but also artificially imitates your child’s existing teeth naturally in terms of aesthetics, functionality and structure.

Final Considerations before Choosing

When you or someone in your family has tooth imperfections, it’s better to visit a qualified and experienced dentist. Here are some additional considerations before choosing the right product:

● Opt for safe, durable and strong materials.

● Use fillings that can closely blend with the color of your natural whites.

● The product should have the ability to cure tooth decay and prevent further damage.

● Improve your oral health and original smile.

So, if you have decayed, cracked, uneven or chipped tooth, consult an experienced dentist for cosmetic dentistry treatments in your area to get the best results.
