Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay.
What we recommend
Rafflesia Dental Surgery recommends composite tooth-colored fillings because:
- Composite materials can restore and strengthen the teeth; silver fillings actually weaken the tooth because the metal can expand and contract based on temperature changes, making the tooth more prone to breakage.
- White fillings improve the health of teeth without marring their appearance with dark fillings.
- There is less post-treatment pain and sensitivity associated with use of composite materials versus silver fillings.
- No known health risk and side effects.
Types of fillings
Dental amalgam, tooth-colored composite resin, glass ionomers, gold fillings, ceramic or porcelain.
