White fillings are a great alternative to silver colored, metal fillings. White fillings are completely amalgam free and mercury free. They are made out of a material called composite which is harmless to the body. They can be used to fix cavities or to improve a smile.
For chipped teeth or teeth with gaps between them, composite fillings or bondings can be used to improve the esthetics of your smile. For teeth that have cavities, white, metal free fillings can often be used to fix the tooth. The price of fillings can depend on how many teeth need to be fixed or how big the filling is. Dental insurance usually helps cover the cost of fillings.
