If most people were given the choice, they would choose natural looking tooth-coloured fillings over more unsightly silver fillings.
Not only do tooth-coloured fillings look more natural when you smile or laugh, they are also viewed as a safer alternative to silver fillings, which contain mercury. Silver fillings also weaken the teeth, making them more susceptible to fracture.
If you currently have silver fillings, here at Crown Street Dental Group we can replace them with the more naturally aesthetic tooth-coloured fillings. We are happy to do this whether your silver filling has reached the end of its lifetime, or if you just want to give your smile a more natural look.
Tooth-coloured fillings bond to the remaining natural tooth, helping to restore more of its original strength. These fillings require less removal of your natural tooth enamel, so this means your tooth is less likely to break or crack. We offer ceramic and porcelain tooth-coloured fillings at Crown Street Dental Group.
