White or Metal Fillings? What’s the Best Option?


Increasingly often, people have white fillings over metal fillings. But what’s the difference, and which option is right for you? If cost is a major concern, then a metal filling might be the best option. These are going to be significantly cheaper than having a white filling and if your filling is going to be at the back of your mouth, it might not be very noticeable anyway.

Alternatively, a white filling will blend in very well with your teeth and will be barely noticeable, even if it is in one of your front teeth. This is a very good option for aesthetics and will look very natural – this type of dental technology is very advanced. It will, of course, cost more money, but many dental patients think this is very much worth the money. The end result will be a filling that nobody would even know that you have.
