We are able to do both metal (amalgam) and white (composite) fillings. It is becoming more popular to do white fillings in back teeth. White fillings in back teeth are pretty but work well only in certain situations.
Amalgam fillings last longer, are stronger, are less sensitive, and work well in the back where appearance is not so important.
If you want white fillings in your back teeth, please discuss this with Dr. Newsome.
