Many of us have had amalgam restorations (silver fillings) in the past. However, they are being used less in favour of newer composite material. But they are still considered to be the strongest filling material. There have been health concerns over the mercury content in amalgam fillings. Despite a great deal of research on this concern, there is still no proven health hazards associated with amalgam fillings.

The more popular (white) composite filling has a more natural look. You can eat or drink straight after your filling procedure regardless of the type of filling material used. Fillings bond to and seal the remaining tooth structure. This helps to prevent breakage and cracking of the remaining tooth.
When a tooth is more than 60% filled, it is considered a heavily filled tooth. With less natural tooth structure as a foundation, there is an increased risk of filling breakage because of reduced bonding strength. In this case, we would recommend a crown over a filling.
