Fillings

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.
