Weighing Your Options with Dental Filling Materials

Weighing Your Options with Dental Filling Materials

People today will not be finding any shortage of dental filling materials with the selection expanding. This makes it possible for just about anyone to find a filling that will be able to cater to their needs and preferences.

The added options with dental fillings are very much welcomed however; people who are not familiar may find it hard to choose one for their own.

Let us look at what dental fillings in Macquarie Park that best fit your needs.

So what is the best material for dental fillings? It should be noted that there is no definitive answer to that. Preference can play a huge role in helping people decide on what type of dental filling that they will be getting.

Furthermore, each and every one of the filling materials that are available each have their own pros and cons that helps set them apart from each other.

Are fillings stronger than teeth? This can depend on the type of filling material that the dentist is using. Composite fillings are pretty popular because of the visual aesthetic it provides allowing them to closely match the colour of the existing teeth.

With that being said, composite material is known to be less durable when compared to other filling counterparts.

Silver amalgam fillings are stronger but have poor aesthetic as it does not match the natural colour of the teeth.

Gold fillings on the other hand are pretty durable and visually pleasing however, they are considered to be the most expensive option.

Do dental fillings wear out? Yes, even the gold fillings can fade over time so make sure to have them checked from time to time.
