The pictures on the right illustrate the differences in the appearance of silver versus white fillings. This patient decided to change his silver fillings to white ones. They are obviously more natural looking and cosmetically appealing.

At our office we offer these choices and answer any questions you may have so that you can make your own informed decision.
