Tooth Coloured Dental Fillings

  • Are used to restore damaged tooth structure
  • Are strong, durable and long-lasting
  • Can be completed in one appointment
  • Less post operative sensitivity
  • Are esthetically pleasing and blend well with natural teeth

During the Dental Filling appointment

  • The tooth is prepared
  • Decayed materials are removed
  • Tooth-coloured resin is used for the filling
  • A curing light is used to harden the resin, which makes it very strong
  • The filling is trimmed and polished

Reasons for Replacing Old Silver Fillings

  • The average life span of a silver filling is 5-15 years.
  • Fillings can be worn around the edges or may have pulled away from the tooth enamel. This process (called leaking) allows bacteria to enter and cause decay around the edges of the filling.
  • The filling becomes worn.
  • Cracks can develop from the biting and chewing forces.
  • Chipped tooth or surfaces of a filling may allow decay to develop.
  • If the filling is large it needs to be replaced with a crown to protect the tooth from fractures and /or breakage.
  • You may replace them for esthetic reasons.
