White resin fillings are natural-looking and matches your existing teeth. Nowadays people are more conscious about the way they look, so they prefer natural looking fillings rather than traditional silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile.
Why white fillings?
A filling helps to restore shape, strength and function to damaged teeth. This helps prevent further decay by sealing the openings where bacteria can enter the tooth. It can also close spaces between front teeth, and your dentist can build up broken tooth with a white filing to restore it to the original look. Also, they provide a mercury-free alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. These natural looking filings can be used in the front or the back of the mouth.
