White Fillings

White Fillings Melbourne

We are a mercury-free practice. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularlypleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercuryfillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Porcelain inlays and ToothColored Restorations (onlays) create fillings that are not only beautiful (orunnoticeable), but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations areesthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Disadvantages of Silver Fillings

Silver fillings have many drawbacks. The edges of the silver filling can weardown, become weak or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and lets cavities get started once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can split.

Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury. They can corrode, leak and cause stains on your teeth and gums.

Fortunately, silver fillings can be safely and easily replaced with Tooth Colored Restorations.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations

There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
