Problems with amalgam fillings

Reset Decrease Increase
The human mouth in its ideal form: no cavities, fillings or sign of dental disease. Unfortunately, most of the time, the teeth have dark, unsightly, silver fillings.

Now, are available dental restorations called resin fillings. This type of fillings can replace dark silver fillings and can make your teeth look beautiful and natural.

In the past, when an old filling worn out or you had a cavity your only option was to have another silver filling. But silver fillings have some drawbacks. The edges of the fillings undergo metal fatigue, and they begin to break down.

As they age, silver fillings can sometimes break in the middle. When fillings break, they no longer seal the tooth.

This lets cavities get started again. Silver fillings just fill holes. They don’t add strength to the teeth and they also expand as they age.

So your tooth may break. The metal in silver fillings causes unsightly stains of the teeth and the gums.

Now, with recent advances in the materials and new laboratory techniques, we have a new filling material that avoids these problems: resin.
