Unlike silver (amalgam) fillings, white filling material sticks to teeth and can form edges, so it may be effectively used to repair front teeth that are chipped, broken, decayed or worn. It can also be used as a veneer to cover marks or discoloration that cleaning won’t remove. White fillings are less noticeable than silver fillings, which turn black in the mouth. White fillings come in a range of shades so they can be matched to the color of your own teeth. A tooth needs less preparation for a white filling than a silver filling.
