White fillings do not contain mercury and are an ideal choice for achieving long term strength in filled teeth. Teeth that are filled with large silver amalgam or mercury fillings are at risk of fracturing because the tooth is pushed apart by these traditional filling materials. Affected teeth can be rebuilt with porcelain inlay, which holds the tooth together, preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure and achieving a more attractive smile.

White fillings achieve an aesthetic and natural-looking finish while avoiding the use of mercury. They also serve to hold the filled teeth together rather than spreading them apart.
