Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are made of a mixture of metals, including silver, copper, and tin. They are strong and durable, and have been used for many years as a filling material. However, they are not as aesthetically pleasing as other materials, as they are visible when the person smiles or talks. We do not provide amalgam fillings at Aesthetic Dental.
Composite fillings, also known as white fillings, are made of a mixture of resin. They are matched to the color of the teeth, so they are more discreet than amalgam fillings. They are also more resistant to wear and tear and can be used on teeth that are under a lot of stress, such as molars.
Gold fillings are made of a mixture of gold, copper, and other metals. They are strong and durable and can last for many years. However, they are also the most expensive option for dental fillings and are not as aesthetically pleasing as composite resin fillings.
