SILVER VS TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

For many years now, dentists have used silver fillings to restore decayed teeth. However: Over time, hot and cold liquids we drink cause the silver to expand and contract, making teeth crack. These fractures start off small and are difficult for dentists to detect. Eventually, the fractures go deeper and cause patients to experience temperature and pressure sensitivity when biting, or cause large portions of the tooth to break off.

In many instances, dentists need to perform a root canal procedure to resolve the symptoms. Additionally, it becomes more difficult and costly for dentists to restore the tooth.

A more preventative approach is for dentists to replace silver fillings with new composite fillings or porcelain-bonded restorations before cracking occurs. This usually prevents further deterioration of the tooth.

Dental composites chemically adhere to the tooth and bind it together, restoring strength and integrity. Composites are typically as strong as the original tooth and dentists can formulate them to match your tooth color. You’ll be pleased with how natural they feel alongside your original teeth.
