There are different types of fillings that dentists use. They’re each made of different materials such as amalgam and gold. These traditional dental filling materials are beneficial because of their strength and durability. They are very useful in situations in which restored teeth need to withstand extreme forces from chewing, such as in the back of the mouth. Although they are durable, they do have their disadvantages. One disadvantage is that they stand out since they are silver and gold, not tooth colored. Newer dental filling materials include ceramic and plastic compounds (composite resins). They do last and are durable but gold and amalgam are stronger and therefore last longer since they are made of metal. While composite resins may not be as durable & long lasting as traditional filling materials, they do have their advantages. Composite resins are tooth colored fillings. Therefore they have a very natural appearance and are attractive. Since every person’s circumstances are different, the type of filling material that is appropriate for one person may not be appropriate for another. Our Bloomfield CT dentist
