Tips for Managing Dental Problems at Home

Most people already have, or will have, a filling at some point in their lives. There are two options that you and your dentist can choose from. Silver fillings (amalgam) and white fillings (composite). Your dentist will discuss with you the type of filling most appropriate for your clinical needs. Read on to find out the advantages and disadvantages of the two options.


If you are unhappy with your smile due to damaged, chipped and cracked teeth or you have larger spaces between teeth than you would like, then cosmetic bonding may be an option for you.

Composite bonding uses the same material as that used in white fillings (composite) but in this case it is used to change the appearance of a tooth. It is called bonding because the material used bonds to the tooth.
