Unsightly Silver fillings

Unsightly Silver fillings are often called mercury fillings by the public and can pose a real aesthetic issue.

Silver fillings or dental amalgams are durable, long lasting and inexpensive materials and hence they were used  extensively in Australia for a long time. They are still one of the most commonly used dental materials in the world.

Recently these materials have been the subject of controversies regarding mercury poisoning and a lot of people are advised by their alternative health practitioners to have them removed. 

In our opinion, if a person feels uncomfortable about amalgams then they have every right to have them removed especially if this is done correctly and with minimum damage to the rest of the tooth and especially if the right materials are used for replacement. 

Another good reason for replacement of silver fillings is that they don't do much for the beauty of your smile. Ceramics are a brilliant replacement for amalgams are they are both aesthetic and durable. In our practice, resins are not recommended for large cavities. 

Please see the relevant page on CEREC for further information or pick up the phone and call us on 82131821. We are happy to speak to you on the phone and book you in for a consultation.
