Before you choose a dental filling to restore your smile, it’s best to know all of the information about each product, which is why our Dido Kim team is happy to help you!

We want you to make the best decision for your oral health when it comes to dental restorations in North Bergen, New Jersey, so we have provided the following information about white and silver fillings so you can know the differences and benefits of each product:

-White fillings: White fillings, also known as composite fillings, are great products that mimic the appearance of your natural teeth. They are made of ceramic, resin, and plastic compounds and they are generally used for the front teeth. However, because of the recent developments in the dental world, composite fillings can also be used for the back teeth because their strength and durability has improved. In addition, composite fillings can also help with other cosmetic issues, like discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and much more.

-Silver fillings: Silver fillings, also known as amalgam fillings, are made of mercury, silver, tin, and copper. Because amalgam is a silver color, the filling is generally used for the back teeth. Mercury is a strong and durable compound that makes amalgam fillings hard and reliable. It can withstand pressure and force, and it typically lasts for many years.
