For anyone contemplating getting their unsightly silver amalgam fillings replaced with tooth-coloured ones there are a few things to note:
– The dentist will only recommend fillings are replaced if they are damaged, for instance, chipped, cracked or worn.
– Composite resin fillings are much better for your teeth than amalgam fillings as less of your teeth needs to be removed and they bond to your tooth making it stronger.
– Composite resin fillings are tooth-coloured and barely visible, increasing your confidence when you smile.
“Your dentist can help you determine if there’s a reason to replace your silver filling.”
