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

Jun. 2nd 2010

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.
