• Composite (White) Fillings

    What you may not know about your old silver fillings
    Want to get rid of the gray metal in your smile? Silver amalgam fillings are not very pleasing to the eye, especially if they are visible when smiling. In fact, there quite a few disadvantages to the amalgam filling: they may be visible, they may corrode, they contain mercury that can leak, they can cause tooth discoloration, imperfect sealing may cause further cavities and they arenon-insulating. However, the greatest disadvantage to amalgam fillings is the wedge effect that it creates which then causes microfractures of the tooth structure.
