The concept of a ‘filling’ is replacing and restoring your tooth structure that is damaged due to decay or fracture with a material. We will replace old, broken-down amalgam/metal fillings that contain traces of mercury with white tooth coloured fillings (composites) to restore your smile and teeth to a more natural look and feel.
With today’s advancements, you’ll no longer have to be embarrassed with your unsightly silver/mercury fillings. Eliminate the dark, black appearance in your teeth with new-age, state-of-the-art, tooth-coloured resin or porcelain materials.
Tooth Coloured Fillings Fillings vs Silver Amalgam Fillings
Composite tooth coloured fillings bond to the tooth; they strengthen the tooth by restoring most of its original shape. On the other hand, silver amalgams weaken the teeth and make them more susceptible to breaking. Broken teeth can be very expensive to replace; white amalgam can actually save time and money in the long run.
Most patients prefer white filling composites, because of the natural colour, overall appearance and feel. Composites are naturally more comfortable.
Composite materials greatly reduce hot and cold sensitivity, compared to silver/mercury amalgams.
Restorations with composites require less tooth removal, less structure to place than those with amalgams and especially with new cavities. Dramatically smaller holes are needed with a composite.
White fillings are healthier because your skilled and gentle dentist uses no traces of mercury, unlike silver amalgam fillings.
