Tooth coloured fillings are one of the easiest ways to restore a broken or chipped tooth
that has suffered decay before the problem progresses into something that requires a more complex treatment.
Consistent oral hygiene is essential in the maintenance and up-keep of your teeth but sometimes accidents happen and you may find yourself with a little damage to your teeth. It may not hurt or seem that important at the time but considering how much you rely on your teeth it is important to see to any problem as soon as possible.
What is the difference between traditional amalgam fillings and modern tooth coloured fillings?
Traditionally amalgam fillings were used to fill up cavities and small damages to teeth but these types of fillings are tough, rough and aesthetically unpleasing. There are also an abundance of health and environmental concerns associated with amalgam fillings because of their high mercury content. Considering mercury toxicity is damaging to humans it is no wonder that at Just Smile near the Sutherland Shire in South Sydney, we utilize filling material that is versatile and safe.
Modern tooth coloured fillings have a number of benefits:
- The colour of the filling can be coloured to match the exact shade of the natural teeth.
- It can be manipulated to reshape crooked teeth
- The filling is resistant to temperature changes in food and beverage consumption
- Once placed the filling provides an airtight seal that prevents further bacteria affecting the area.
