Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam (silver) fillings have been used for over 150 years, and do contain mercury. As Amalgam fillings do not bond to the teeth, they do not add extra strength. Over the years, eventually leakage and cracks can occur around the filling. With advances in technology there are now newer mercury free, teeth coloured fillings which are just as strong and durable.

White Fillings

If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option that is mercury free would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.

Here is how white fillings work:
  1. This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced.
  2. The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time.
  3. The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.
