Single Tooth Makeover

What a difference a small white filling can make.  Here is an example of a filling I did this morning.  The old filling, an amalgam filling (50% Mercury, 50% silver), was leaking and had recurrent decay under it.

The “white filling” is placed after gently removing the old filling and any associated decay.  Then a complex bonding procedure is followed closely, ensuring a perfect bond and beautiful aesthetics.  All too often old silver mercury fillings like this result in fractured teeth which then require extensive rebuilding, root canal therapy, or even removal of the tooth.  Prevention and early intervention are the only two ways to significantly reduce the risk of this happening.
