How is a aesthetic filling performed?
Through a simple procedure, we will eliminate the metal restoration, clean the cavity and seal it again with composite. As the composite is almost imperceptible to the eye, it restores the tooth functionally and aesthetically.
It is necessary to remove my old metallic fillings?
But our team would have to evaluate the status of your metal restorations and if it is necessary to remove them or not.
Why should I change my old metallic fillings?
Old metallic fillings, called amalgams (a mix of various metals including silver and mercury), contain materials that tend to fracture along the borders of the restoration. Over time, this carries consequences such as leakage of food into these border spaces and the development of more cavities under the amalgam.
