Black or Silver Fillings
Black and silver fillings don’t look as nice as a bright white tooth.
So if black fillings and silver fillings are unsightly then why do dentists use them?
Well because the metal substance used for the filling (known as dental amalgam) is quite cost effective and lasts a good period of time before needing replacement.
The disadvantages of silver fillings include the fact that they are ugly and they tarnish and corrode which affects thier strength.
At Smile Lincs we provide a lot of patients with tooth coloured or white fillings that are made of a tough resin material.
This gives a much more natural look and it is bonded to the tooth structure meaning it lasts.
