Dental Fillings

The concept of a filling is replacing and restoring your tooth structure that is damaged due to decay.

We will replace old, broken-down amalgam/metal fillings that contain traces of mercury with white fillings (composites) to restore your smile and teeth to a more natural look and feel.

You will no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of unsightly and unhealthy silver/mercury fillings or metal margins of the past as we can remove any dark/black appearances in your teeth with the latest tooth-coloured resin or porcelain materials.

White Fillings Versus Silver Amalgam Fillings

White Fillings

Silver Amalgam Fillings

Bond to the teeth

Weaken the teeth

Strengthen the tooth by restoring most of original shape saves time and money long term

More susceptible to breaking results in replacing teeth which can be expensive

Preferred by most patients due to natural colour, strength, feel, more comfortable

Not natural look like white fillings

Hot and cold sensitivity reduced

Some sensitivity with silver/mercury amalgams

Restorations require less tooth removal, less structure to place especially new cavities

More tooth removal , more structure to place

Smaller holes required

Larger holes required

Healthier as no mercury used

Mercury used – not as healthy
