Tooth Fillings & Restorations

Tooth Fillings & Restorations

In the past, silver/mercury fillings were the main material used to seal teeth after decay was removed. Apart from the obvious fact that silver fillings are unattractive, it was found that it is a terrible material to use in regards of adding to tooth strength. We use tooth colored porcelain and resins to replace old fillings and restore our patients’ teeth to a condition which will last for decades.

Why You Should Have Your Silver Fillings Replaced

Silver Fillings:

  • Have a high mercury content which has been found to be poisonous.
  • Expand and contract over time, often weakening teeth and leading to future cavities and tooth destruction.
  • Unattractive.

Tooth Colored Filling Replacements:

  • Appear natural.
  • 100% safe.
  • Strengthens teeth and provides a seal which will last for several decades.

Filling Replacement Procedure

  • Silver filling is removed.
  • Existing decay is removed.
  • A mold is taken of your tooth to help create the perfect onlay.
  • Temporary onlay is bonded to the tooth surface.
  • Dental lab creates custom onlay.
  • The temporary onlay is removed, and your tooth surface is prepared for the permanent bonding of the new onlay.
  • New onlay is bonded to the surface.
  • Your tooth is polished.
