A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or through accidental damage.
Many people have had (silver) amalgam fillings in the past which, although strong, are unsightly.
Providing a healthier, more natural looking alternative to traditional amalgam fillings, white or tooth coloured fillings are long lasting and available in a range of shades that can be matched to the colour of your own teeth.
TESTIMONIAL FROM MS. AP
“Following a routine check up, I requested some options to remove old mercury fillings. At 60 years old I had suffered from the lumps of silver being pushed into cavities with little consideration as to how they would look in the future. This included whitening as well as filling replacements and new crowns.”
My dentist at Oradi Dental, suggested a course of treatment and explained in full what he would do, when and the expected results.
The general deterioration and occasional teeth breaking was a result of fillings being worn down so much, they were impacting on the teeth below.
The amount of time taken to get an accurate mold of my teeth was considerable. On several occasions my dentist at Oradi Dental contacted the company making the crowns to ensure the fit was perfect.
My teeth are now uniformly white; the front incisors are more rounded; there are no rough fillings and I am more confident generally about them. My bite changed and has continued to be different, however I have quickly become accustomed to this and it has stopped me nibbling my nails and biting my cheek!
I would recommend anyone to have the treatment although it is expensive but as my mother said ‘You cannot spend too much on teeth!’.”
Metal free, white fillings are less noticeable than amalgam fillings which turn black in the mouth. Many people decide to switch to white fillings when older style amalgams need replacing due to wear and tear. However, if you have dark or discoloured fillings that are visible when smiling or laughing, you may decide to change them for aesthetic reasons.
