Amalgam is a silver coloured metal that is highly visible in the mouth and which flexes slightly when it comes under pressure or into contact with hot and cold. This continual flexing can eventually create micro-fractures in teeth, weakening them over time. Modern tooth coloured composite resins can nearly invisibly mend teeth. The material bonds strongly to the tooth, sealing it from further infection and decay and composite resin doesn’t flex or change shape.
