Metal fillings have been around for a very long time as the best method of filling a cavity within a tooth. However, these amalgam (metal) fillings can detract from the appearance of a person’s smile. They can be unsightly, especially in front teeth, but they can also change color and become more obvious over time – even in the very back molars. Metal fillings are also known for developing decay beneath the filling as metal expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations. There is also a recent concern that the mercury contained in amalgam fillings can have a negative impact on a person’s health. Because of both the unattractiveness and the worry of toxins, many people are replacing their amalgam fillings with white fillings.
