|Why do I have bad breath?|
Are white fillings as good as silver?
Yes. In some instances, they are even better. Silver fillings just fill the hole in the tooth. If the hole (cavity) is large or near an edge of the tooth, the walls that are left can be thin and weak. With repeated use, thin and weak parts of teeth will crack and break.
White fillings do more than just fill the hole. They actually bond to the tooth structure. In this way, they make the tooth stronger. These bonded fillings can prevent teeth from cracking, and if they already have cracks starting, can prevent them from getting worse.
