Replacing Silver Fillings in Austin
Replacing silver fillings has become more widespread as a growing number of patients learn about tooth-colored alternatives. Silver fillings, also known as amalgam fillings or “metal fillings”, have been widely used in the past (and still are by many dentists) as a way to treat a decayed tooth. The problem with silver fillings is that they are not natural-looking. Metal does not blend in with the natural color of teeth! There is also some question about the safety of the mercury content in dental amalgam which is used in silver fillings. Dental amalgam is not recommended for children or pregnant mothers. If it’s not safe for them, then why is it safe for others?
Nowadays, patients can choose to replace silver fillings with new, more dependable, white fillings. White fillings blend in with the rest of your smile, giving you protection and aesthetics all in one procedure!
