If part of a tooth has been lost, either through decay or damage, a filling might be necessary. A filling will plug the hole and prevent future pain and discomfort. A white filling is tailored matches the colour of your existing teeth to leave you with a natural looking smile.
At Bligh Park we can also replace the large silver amalgam or mercury fillings as they are at risk of fracturing and consequently damaging the tooth as they can distort in temperature changes. White fillings on the other hand do not contain mercury and are an ideal choice for achieving long term strength in filled teeth. Teeth with amalgam or mercury fillings can be rebuilt with porcelain inlays, which holds the tooth together as opposed to spreading it apart, preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure allowing teeth to be safely and aesthetically restored achieving a more natural, healthy smile..
