For many years, silver mercury amalgam fillings were used in dentistry. You have likely had one in your lifetime. In recent years however, there has been a shift away from silver fillings. Lifestyle Dentistry recommends tooth-coloured fillings because they result in a stronger tooth and higher aesthetic value. Lifestyle Dentistry is pleased to offer tooth-coloured fillings!

The Disadvantages of Silver Fillings

Tooth Coloured FIllings | Lifestyle Dentistry | Family & General Dentist | Mississauga | Ontario

The edges of silver fillings tend to wear down over time, eventually becoming weak and breaking. When this occurs, the tooth is at risk of cavities. Silver fillings also tend to expand and contract, which can cause the tooth to split. If it splits, this results in bacteria and possibly cavities. Silver fillings also contain approximately 50% mercury. Mercury can corrode, leak, and potentially cause stains on your teeth and gums.

The Advantages of Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Composite resins are bonded to the tooth, creating an extremely tight fit superior to silver fillings. We always want to save as much of the tooth as possible. Restorations using resin can be used in situations where most of the original tooth has been lost. This allows the tooth to stay intact. Furthermore, some resins used in tooth-coloured restorations contain fluoride, which helps to fight off decay. The resin wears like a natural tooth.  This results in a wonderful, natural-looking smile.
