A composite resin filling (also known as a white filling) is a tooth-colored plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide) and is a composite quartz resin which is hardened using a light. Composite fillings tend to be used as an alternative to metal, or silver amalgam, fillings and are used to treat decay on a portion of a tooth, replace an old silver amalgam filling and to maintain a white smile.
Also called silver filling restoration or alloy restoration. Dental amalgam is a mixture or alloy of metals, including mercury, which is combined to form a soft and silvery looking paste which hardens on setting. It is used for the restoration of the form and function of teeth, and is made up of various metals such as silver, tin, copper, and sometimes zinc. This process has been used for dental filling for decades.
