Amalgam Fillings vs. Composite Fillings (video)

Amalgam Fillings vs. Composite Fillings

It’s not quite the same as “Microsoft vs. Apple” or (for older folks) “VHS vs. Betamax,” but some dentists and their patients like to discuss the merits of amalgam fillings vs. composite fillings.


Dr. Alvin Daboul and our other Royal Oaks, MI dentists use only tooth-colored composite fillings. They look more natural in your smile. Not only that, but they won’t expand and contract over time as amalgam fillings do. The repeated expansion and contraction can damage your tooth.

Watch this American Dental Association video for more information on composite fillings. Then, if you want to discuss amalgam fillings vs. composite fillings – or any other aspect of your family’s dental care – with us, call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522.
