The pressure to have an attractive smile is greater than ever before. While we know to try not to judge a book by its cover, studies have shown that the appearance of someone’s teeth does affect how we feel about them. For example, the majority of people would actually turn down a second date with someone if they felt that their teeth weren’t attractive. Bright, white teeth with minimal signs of restoration are considered more desirable. While most types of dental restoration are anything but subtle or discreet, there are solutions that are much less obvious. One of these is white fillings, which are now much more popular and commonly-requested than their predecessor and cheaper alternative – fillings made from silver amalgam.
