Adhesive Restoration (Replacing silver fillings with white fillings)

Tooth-coloured fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. Tooth fillings coloured to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings and are made of a plastic dental resin combined with porcelain and glass particles. These types of fillings are, durable and are way more natural looking than amalgam fillings.

If you have a cavity in a tooth or broken fillings or if your teeth are full of mercury fillings, or amalgam fillings you may want to ask your dentist about changing to tooth-coloured fillings. Mercury fillings or amalgam fillings can easily be removed and replaced with far more attractive coloured fillings. Research shows that composite fillings actually strengthen your tooth and further protect it from decay.

Tooth-coloured fillings are a safer and more attractive alternative to older silver amalgam fillings. By precisely matching tooth-coloured composite fillings with the natural colour of your teeth, a skilled cosmetic dentist is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. The removal of amalgam fillings can provide patients with white fillings that provide a more pleasing, silver-free smile.
