|Is There Silver In Your Smile?
Remember years ago, when you'd visit your dentist and find out that you had a cavity even though you couldn't see it? You'd schedule an appointment to have it filled and return in a week or so. On your return visit the doctor would fill your tooth and prevent the future problems that could arise from a growing cavity. Upon looking in a mirror, however, you'd noticed that there was an awful looking silver filling. You almost wished it was still the cavity that you couldn't see.
These metallic fillings were standard practice until not so long ago. While these fillings are unattractive to begin with, over time, the material they are composed of can corrode and leak, blackening the silver and many times the tooth.
If you're embarrassed by old fillings and tired of hiding your smile, talk to us about Composite fillings. Composite fillings are made of a material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. They are strong, stain-resistant, and colour-matched to the natural tooth, making them essentially 'invisible'.
