What's the difference between tooth-colored and silver fillings?

Before and After photo of dental fillingsFor decades silver (amalgam) fillings were used because they were the most durable material available at the time. Today, we can use tooth-colored fillings (composites) at our Tucson dental office that are every bit as strong as amalgam.

Amalgam Fillings

The most noticeable difference between the two materials is the obvious dark spot that an amalgam filling leaves in your mouth. These fillings aren’t typically used in front teeth that are visible when you smile. But you still have to contend with the dark chunk of silver material in back teeth when you open wide!

On the other hand, tooth-colored fillings are specifically designed to be aesthetically pleasing. First, we have control over the shading of the material and can create a customized color for your filling that blends with your natural tooth. Also, the method for placing tooth-colored fillings at our Tucson dental office is very different from amalgam.

An amalgam filling basically just sits inside the prepared space. A tooth-colored filling is bonded securely to all surfaces of the tooth. This results in a filling that’s not only strong but is also indistinguishable from the rest of the tooth.
