We work exclusively with white mercury-free fillings. White fillings are made of a strong composite resin that is matched to the surrounding tooth color. In the past, white fillings were placed only on front teeth, but recently a stronger more durable material has been developed that can withstand the chewing pressure of back teeth.
Advantages of White Fillings
- White restorations are more natural looking
- Many patients prefer mercury-free fillings
- Patients with sensitivity to heat or cold find that the composite resin doesn't conduct temperature changes as fast
