One option to improve the cosmetic look of your smile is to have your metal-coloured fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or `white` fillings. This is a safe procedure that entails one of our dentists removing any decay from your tooth, taking out the metal or amalgam filling and placing a tooth coloured filling instead. The new filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
As dentists we believe prevention is always better than cure and will always encourage and help you to look after your teeth so you don`t develop tooth decay in the first place. If you do have decay and need a filling then we recommend white fillings as a good solution that is both aesthetic and functional.
