Amalgam or metal filling are silver, contain mercury and are very apparent after being placed in the mouth. It is uncommon for people to choose this type of filling now as there is a more aesthetically pleasing, tooth coloured option available. This option is a material called composite which can be matched to the exact shade of your tooth and sculpted by a skilled dentist to appear as a natural as possible.
Undetectable to the untrained eye, white fillings can be used to restore decayed teeth, replace existing fillings, fix chipped front teeth and create composite veneers.
Below is a picture of an Amalgam filling that has been replaced by composite material.
If replacing your exsisting metal fillings with undetectable white ones is something you are interested in, call us today to book an appointment to speak to one of our dentists.
We use only the highest quality material, advanced multi-shade Venus Pearl Composite Material, and finest Italian instruments to match the colour and contours of the existing teeth.
