Do it right the first time.
Choose a quality restoration that will last for years and years. Choose gold or porcelain.
The most common white filling material used today is composite resin. It has replaced amalgam mainly because of its tooth colour. The research shows that it is a very poor restorative material. It is difficult to place in the tooth. It requires great operator skill, but in spite of that, it does not restore the tooth to its original shape and form. It is a poor filling material and does not produce good restoration.
The material is prone to promote secondary decay because of leakage and shrinkage. Is a causative factor in promoting gum disease and bone loss.
Although the initial cost of composite is low, it is a compromise solution with no long-term benefit. The biologic price is too high to pay. Why set your teeth on a path to loss which could have been avoided.
How many times do you want a tooth to be worked on in your lifetime?
Cheap is expensive – go for a cost-effective long-term solution. You will not regret it. This is sound professional advice that all good dentists will agree on.
