Nobody wants a mouth full of metal fillings, and too many mercury alloy fillings can affect your smile. Luckily, there is something you can do to change this look. You can remove and replace these unsightly fillings today. White cavity fillings are available to create a more natural look and won’t distract from the beauty of your smile.
Fortunately, there are many types of filling options available today, so you don’t have to settle for a traditional mercury filling. If you want a more natural look, particularly on your bottom teeth which are more visible to others, you will want to consider white fillings that are made from durable materials like porcelain.
Porcelain cavity fillings have many benefits, particularly when compared to older filling options. This type of white cavity filling is durable and you will experience less cracking and breaking than with traditional metal fillings. This is particularly important as these cracks can lead to tooth decay and other serious health concerns if they are not taken care of right away.
When you treat a cavity with a white tooth filling, it will bond well to your teeth and help maintain their natural shape, which is often hard to achieve with older filling options. Plus, modern white cavity fillings can last for a long time. You won’t find yourself in the dentist’s chair for frequent filling replacements. In many cases, fillings made from porcelain can last for up to a decade if you take proper care of your teeth.
If you currently have several metal fillings covering your teeth, talk to one of our dental experts at Markham 7 Dental to discuss removing and replacing these fillings. In just a few visits, you can have more natural-looking teeth throughout your entire mouth and you will be able to create a smile that you love.
