Tooth-colored Composite Restoration Vs Silver Amalgam Fillings

Silver Amalgam Fillings used to be the conventional way of filling dental cavities. These amalgams are generally made of metallic materials/substances including silver, tin, copper, and mercury which makes them stronger and more durable. It is suitable to fill the deeper and larger cavities, especially back teeth which need more support while chewing and grinding. A normal silver amalgam filling can last you up to 12 years. Since the material is silver in color the filling is not suitable for the front teeth as it is not aesthetically pleasing. The changes in temperature can cause the material to expand and contract, this can cause the tooth to crack. Despite the controversy about Mercury used in silver amalgam., it has been in practice since ages.

Tooth-Coloured Composite Fillings are made of glass and quartz materials. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, they match to the natural shade of the tooth, making them virtually invisible. These aesthetic restorations are less likely to cause tooth sensitivity, as they do not expand and contract with changes in temperature, and they require less tooth structure to be removed during the filling process, helping to preserve more of the natural tooth. Composite filings are moderately durable and sturdy. They can survive from up to five to Seven years, after which a replacement might be required. Since it can be customised to match the color of the patient's teeth, it is the most popular option practised worldwide.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ceramic fillings?

They are created using porcelain material, which makes them both durable and cosmetically appealing. The ceramic fillings are tooth colored and are better stain-resistant than composite resin. The only negative is they need more tooth structure removed in order to fix the restoration and are much costlier as compared to composites. They are used on large cavities to prevent breakage. It is still one of the best fillings for severely destructed teeth as it helps to make teeth durable and fully functional.

What is Glass Ionomers?

Ionomers include acrylic acids, fine glass powder, acid raisins, and glass fillers. These fillings are more suitable for small cavities and areas surrounding the roots of the teeth and are also used with composite fillings as an adjunct. As compared to composite and conventional fillings these filings are less strong so they are suitable for kids teeth only which bear a less or negligible amount of pressure while eating. They are also water soluble which makes them a poor choice of filling materials in the back tooth region. The best thing about these fillings is that they release fluoride which prevents decay.
