Gone are the days of silver amalgam fillings! It used to be standard for patients to be offered amalgam fillings, however, patients are now visiting our clinic to remove these unsightly silver fillings to replace them with natural looking white fillings.
White fillings aren’t just aesthetically pleasing, they also come with other benefits.
The main benefit of white fillings is that they blend in with the colour of your teeth so it isn’t immediately obvious when you are laughing or smiling that you have a filling. Silver amalgam fillings are very dark in colour and aren’t aesthetically pleasing, replacing these with white fillings will brighten up your smile and increase your confidence.
Decayed or crooked teeth need additional support to prevent cracking. White fillings provide the support your tooth needs, meaning less of your tooth needs to be removed to support the filling and keep it in place.
In the early days of white fillings, dental professionals queried whether or not they were strong enough to be used in back teeth, where most of the pressure of chewing is more prevalent. However, new advancements in recent years have shown that white fillings are very durable and are capable of being fitted anymore in the mouth without cracking.
