White Fillings Versus Gold or Silver Dental Fillings- Which One To Choose?
Traditional dental procedures used precious metals like gold and silver to mold into tooth fillings. Gold fillings, also known as inserts or Onlays, were composed of gold and other metallic alloys to provide strength, but they were more expensive than silver fillings. Because silver fillings, also known as amalgam, are less costly and more enduring, they were the preferred alternative.
The issue with silver fillings is that they continue to darken or give the surrounding teeth a gray tinge.
White fillings became the preferred option for dental fillings as orthodontic clinics increased their oral care and aesthetic services.
