Composite (white fillings) are now the most common restorations. Where silver (amalgam) fillings were once common-place, composites are now the more popular choice. New white fillings (composite) can be matched to the tooth's natural colour, creating aesthetically pleasing results. Moreover, white fillings are stronger and more durable than silver amalgam.
If you are unhappy with existing amalgam fillings, they can be replaced with composite (white) fillings.
Crowns & Bridges
Porcelain crowns (or caps as they are often referred to) can provide an excellent, natural-looking, long lasting means of repairing decayed or damaged teeth, making them healthier, stronger and more beautiful. A crown is used in structurally compromised teeth. This can be as a result of breakage, decay where the tooth is badly broken down, or in heavily filled teeth to help to strengthen them. Crowns are made from porcelain and sometimes porcelain bonded to metal.
A Bridge, quite literally, spans the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The new tooth is attached to crowns (caps) that slip over the teeth adjacent to the gap. Bridges are either all porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. A bridge can be used for anyone who has a space and does not want to wear a denture. There are many different types of bridges so generally we can make one to fit your situation. However bridges are not always indicated and the best option for you may be an implant or denture.
A thorough examination is necessary to ascertain suitability.
