The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
One of the main advantages of composite fillings is their natural appearance. Unlike silver amalgam fillings, which are noticeable when you talk or laugh, tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. This helps you maintain a beautiful, confident smile.
Composite fillings are not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable. Made from high-quality resin or plastic, these fillings can withstand the pressure of biting and chewing, ensuring a long-lasting solution for your dental needs.
Tooth-colored fillings provide a safer alternative to silver amalgam fillings, which contain potentially harmful elements like mercury. With the increasing awareness of the dangers associated with mercury exposure, composite fillings are an ideal choice for maintaining a healthy smile.
Comparing Silver Mercury to Tooth-Colored Fillings
Silver amalgam fillings consist of a mix of metals, including mercury, silver, tin, and copper. On the other hand, composite fillings are made from a combination of resin or plastic and finely ground glass particles. This material is not only safer but also provides a more natural appearance.
While composite fillings may initially cost more than amalgam fillings, they often prove to be a better long-term investment. The additional expense is offset by the aesthetic benefits and the decreased risk of potential health problems associated with mercury exposure.
The presence of mercury in amalgam fillings has raised concerns about their safety. Although the American Dental Association maintains that amalgam fillings are safe, some studies suggest a link between mercury exposure and health problems. By choosing composite fillings, you can eliminate these concerns and maintain a healthy smile.
