Do you have silver fillings in your smile?
If you are unhappy with the silver in your smile, talk to us about white fillings.
Do they cause you to hide your teeth when you speak?
Amalgam or metallic filling were the standard material used until not so long ago in dentistry. The amalgam was needed for its strength, especially on chewing surfaces and for large cavities.
These fillings while structurally sturdy are arguably aesthetically unpleasing. The metallic colour makes the filling standout visually while the components can corrode and leak, blackening the silver, and often the tooth.
Are you allergic to metallic filling?
White or Composite fillings are made of a porcelain-like material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal, often allowing us to preserve more of the natural tooth. The material is strong enough for chewing surfaces, is stain-resistant and colour-matched to your natural tooth making the filling almost invisible.
Park Royal Dentistry is pleased to offer our patients white fillings for their restorative needs. We can even replace old worn metallic fillings with new white fillings restoring your confidence as well as your teeth!
