Getting a filling is not an ideal situation for anyone – after all it indicates that there is a problem with the health of your teeth – but for many people, it’s a necessary measure for restoring a tooth that has been affected by decay and can protect it from further damage. In the past, dentists would use Mercury based amalgam fillings that would result in unsightly, metal coloured smiles, but at My Smile Dental, amalgam fillings are a thing of the past. Our dentists can provide you with composite resin fillings that resemble the colour of your teeth and enable you to retain your beautiful white smile even when you’ve had dental work.
Many people are self conscious about their smile; especially when there’s the prospect of getting a filling. But with tooth-coloured composite resin fillings, there’s no need to be worried about the appearance. Created using a mixture of a synthetic resin, glass particles and a setting ingredient, these fillings can now be made to match the precise colour and shape of your existing teeth.
At My Smile Dental, we don’t limit tooth-coloured fillings to new dental repairs. If your old amalgam fillings have broken or just need replacing, we can put tooth coloured fillings in their place and rejuvenate your smile!
