Routine dental checkups are required to check your teeth for cavities and ensure your gums are healthy. If you have a cavity, you have likely been told that you are in need of a filling. When you think of a filling, you probably think of the traditional silver filling, also known as an amalgam filling. While these types of fillings were used previously, the dental industry has become more advanced and composite fillings are now offered. These fillings are made from materials that are tooth colored and they match your teeth without being obvious like the silver option. Many patients enjoy the tooth-colored filling option as it is more aesthetically pleasing.

Tooth-Colored Fillings vs. Silver Fillings

At Eco Dental NY, we offer tooth-colored fillings to our patients to improve the look of their smile. You may be wondering why you SHOULD choose tooth-colored fillings and we can tell you exactly why below:

Reduced Risk of Allergies

While it is unlikely that you will have a reaction to silver fillings, it can still happen in patients, especially those who have severe metal sensitivities. If you choose a composite or tooth-colored option, the risk of an allergic reaction is diminished.

Improves the Strength of Your Teeth

One of the interesting things about amalgam fillings is that the silver material tends to contract and expand with temperature changes in the mouth, which can weaken the integrity of the tooth’s structure over time. Tooth-colored fillings do not contract or expand, so the tooth’s structure is not effected.

Looks Natural

Tooth-colored fillings look natural and maintain your self-confidence by providing you with the smile you desire. Silver fillings are noticeable when you talk and can sometimes catch the eye of individuals, which may lead to you covering your mouth in public.

Lasts a Long Time

One of the biggest differences between silver fillings and tooth-colored fillings is that tooth-colored fillings bond to the actual tooth, which ensures that they will last for a long time. Silver fillings do not bond to the enamel, which is why fillings sometimes fall out.

How Will I Know I Need a Filling?

When you come into our office for a dental checkup, our dentists will consult with you and provide you with an examination. If any cavities are detected, our dentists will talk to you about your options including tooth-colored fillings. Sometimes, fillings are not the right dental option and your dentist will discuss this with you and what the other options are, at that time.

In general, when determining if someone is a good candidate, our dentists will consider the following:

In addition to taking the above into consideration, our dentists will also look at the tooth itself and make sure that the decay is minimal, there are no problems with the surrounding the gums, the pain experienced is superficial and not deep within the tooth, and the tooth is otherwise considered healthy outside of the slight decay.

Clients share their experience

I saw the dentist last week for a root canal procedure. He was very nice and personable and I felt relaxed. The root canal was easy and there was no pain. Not even the next day. I put all of my trust in him to keep my smile always looking bright and my teeth healthy. Recommended Eco Dental.

If you were looking for a good cosmetic dentist that is affordable and takes most insurance plans, I would recommend. I have been patient for over a year and he turned my smile from unattractive to wow! I have received dental implants and porcelain veneers and never felt a thing .
James Stinger
I first went for a dental exam and I was very impressed by all the staff and how friendly and pleasant they were. When I met the doctor I could tell immediately that I would like him and I was right. I have been back several times since and I have enjoyed each experience. I would definitely recommend.
