I am assuming it is in the back of your mouth. You better just leave it alone. To get it replaced is a big deal. They will have to drill that one out, and take a little more tooth out and then refill it. Just leave it as it is.

do you think that silver fillings are stronger than the composite?

well atleast for the back teeth?

Thanks

If the dentist thought putting in a white filling was the right thing to do, he would have done it.

If you don't like the silver than ask for a crown. Composite fillings in the back are long-term trouble.

I hope this answers ALL your questions.

Ask your dentist about white porcelain fillings. For me they drilled out the black mercury filling at one visit, made a mold, and gave me a temporary filling. The lab made the porcelain filling, and on the next visit the dentist cemented it in.

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that there are great alternatives today that make teeth look so much nicer.
