Repairs to decayed damaged or discoloured teeth can be made using silver (dental amalgam), tooth coloured (resin or ceramic), or gold fillings.  Although cosmetics may be a part of your decision in choosing the type of filling desired, the strength, durability and cost of the filling must also be addressed.  While some people may have a true sensitivity to some filling materials (mercury and resin monomers included), only a careful discussion with the dentist will help you decide which filling materials will best suit your needs.
