We use modern adhesive filling materials such as resin based composite or glass-ionomer based materials to restore cavities, broken down fillings or to aid us in saving and planning for treatment for cracked teeth. We try to avoid the older 'Silver Mercury' based Amalgam restorations as they routinely lead to teeth cracking.
As part of our dental checkup process, our dentists will be able to identify any tooth that may required routine dental fillings to fix up any cavities or cracks that may be present. We can even use the filling materials to make composite veneers for a more affordable cosmetic makeover. However, there may be situations where dental filling are simply not up for the task - sometimes they are not strong enough, or do not have the cosmetic characteristics that are necessary for your situation. We will be able to guide you through the process.
