Both amalgam and composite fillings can restore your teeth and smile, but there are specific situations in which one may be more suitable than the other.

Key takeaways:

–  Composite fillings match your teeth’s colour accurately, so they’re almost invisible.

–  Amalgam fillings are usually more durable.

–  Composite fillings work best to treat small and medium-sized cavities, whereas amalgam fillings are best for large cavities.

Remember that fillings still need to be looked after, just like the rest of your teeth.
