Dental Blog, Between a silver and white filling what is the difference

Wednesday, Jun. 2nd 2010 11:32 AM

My five year old son has to have two filling in his back baby teeth.  The dentist said I could either have him do silver fillings or white fillings.  He said he would advise silver since they are cheaper and the teeth in question are is baby teeth and not adult teeth were it may matter more.  What is the best to get?  He is going back to the dentist to have the filling done but not sure which way I should really go.

    I agree with the dentist. Why pay more for white fillings when silver filling are fine. I would get my child white filling for their adult teeth however for baby teeth it seems like a waste of money.

    It will still come down to personal choice so as long as you get them the needed filling it really does not matter in the end whether it is white or sliver.

    If they are is back teeth silver fillings seem fine to me. Baby teeth will not stay in so having white filling are nice it not really necessary.
