Replace your old metal fillings with white dental fillings
If you ignore your oral health it can cause serious problems that require more invasive treatment. White fillings have always been considered less long-lasting than silver amalgam fillings. However, restorative materials continue to advance over time with tooth coloured fillings now comparable to silver amalgam and proving to be very successful.
The healthier alternative
Tooth coloured fillings will fix teeth that have been damaged or decayed. The processes are also the same as amalgam fillings. Decay will be cleaned out and medication used to eliminate any potential discomfort.
The big difference is that once the filling is placed and the shape of your tooth is restored, it will look much more natural in your mouth.
The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
Your dental team can advise you on how long your fillings should last.
