October 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #84: White Fillings vs. Silver Fillings

Tip of the Week

Even if you're not a rap star, you can still have a mouth full of precious metal. Eat badly enough, stop brushing your teeth, and before long your dentist will be filling your mouth with metal fillings.

If you'd prefer white fillings that match your teeth, be careful as dental insurance will often cover less of the cost of white fillings than of silver ones, particularly if the fillings are in the back of your mouth. Many people choose to use metal in the back to save money and white in the front for cosmetic reasons. Both types of fillings are effective, so the choice of which kind to get is up to you.
