Many patients come to us about their silver fillings from previous treatments. Aside from being obvious and unsightly, silver fillings can also weaken enamel. Silver fillings also have 50 percent mercury which can leak, corrode and stain the teeth and gums. When this kind of restoration fails or wears down, the tooth becomes exposed to bacteria build-up which can lead to decay and infection.
Today, silver fillings can be safely and effectively replaced with tooth-colored restorations. Advancements in bonding have made tooth-colored fillings a better, durable and aesthetically-pleasing choice. At Today's Dentistry, we provide beautiful, precision-crafted fillings that can blend seamlessly with the rest of your natural teeth.
