White dental fillings are aesthetically superior to their mercury-filled counterparts, but how do they compare in terms of strength and safety? Let’s find out!

What is a Dental Filling Actually?

A dental filling is a restoration used to fill cavities. It’s used when a tooth has been decayed by acids in your mouth or has become weakened due to an injury. Dental fillings are one of two types, either amalgam or composite (white) fillings. Amalgam fillings are silver-colored and composites come in several shades, including white.

Both amalgam and composite materials can repair tooth decay and restore strength to damaged teeth. White fillings are preferred over amalgams for their strength, durability, aesthetics and health benefits.

Are Mercury Silver Amalgam Fillings Dangerous?

Metal based mercury or silver fillings can leak into your mouth and bloodstream, potentially causing a number of health issues like: Nervous system damage, muscle weakness and reduced motor function, nausea, vomiting, headaches and irritability. In some cases mercury can also cause rashes or chronic fatigue syndrome.

The first sign that you have a problem is when you begin to see new silver fillings discoloring over time. Some people start to feel sick during or after having amalgam fillings placed in their teeth. If you are experiencing one or more of these problems then it’s important that you get your mercury fillings removed as soon as possible to avoid developing long-term health conditions from them leaking toxins into your body over time.


What are the exact Benefits of White Fillings?

White fillings are made of resin and contain no mercury, so they aren’t toxic to your body. Traditional amalgam fillings, on the other hand, are made of a combination of silver, tin, copper and mercury which can leak in your mouth, potentially causing a variety of health issues.

• Look Better
• Feel Better
• Are Stronger
• More Durable
• and Healthier

At this point in time there is no doubt about the superiority of white dental fillings.
