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.
This patient did not like the appearance of her black fillings and wanted them replaced with white fillings. The amalgams were removed and white filling material was placed to restore the natural anatomy and function of these teeth. The final result is utterly seamless.
