Our Oshawa dental office offers an excellent solution to patients who still have silver filings in their smile. We can replace your silver amalgam fillings with cosmetic white or composite fillings to make your smile white again!
Our Oshawa dental office offers composite tooth-coloured fillings in order to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc.
The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. If you are interested in having your amalgam (silver) fillings replaced with more aesthetically pleasing composite ones, then talk to your dentist about it. Up until recently amalgam fillings were the common practice for filling teeth. Due to their strength, they were useful to fill larger cavities and chewing surfaces.
Composite fillings are now preferable for those who have an allergy to mercury and who want to preserve their natural smiles as much as possible. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. However, they are very durable and will last many years.
If you aren’t loving your silver smile, talk to us about changing it with white or composite fillings by contacting our Oshawa dental office.
