  5. WHAT ARE ADVANTAGES OF TOOTH COLOURED FILLINGS ? MORE CONSERVATIVE PROCEDURE, most amount of natural tooth structure is retained, only the bad part of the tooth is removed while preparing cavity in a tooth. When we place an amalgam filling, we have to remove extra healthy tooth structure, just so the filling will stay in place. When we restore your tooth with composite resin (tooth colored material), we only need to remove the decayed portion, because the bond (Generation 5th and 7th) anchors the material tightly in place. This means you retain more healthy tooth structure. Also, because white fillings are bonded to your tooth, they add strength to the tooth.

It depends upon ones oral hygiene methods, more you take care of it all restorations survive more. • CRACKS AND FRACTURES – Amalgam material in comparison with other filling materials, may experience a wide degree of expansion and contraction and lead to a higher incidence of cracks and fractures in restoration.
