Thunder Bay Dental Clinic Composite Fillings
Oasis Family Dental offers mercury-free solutions with our tooth colored and porcelain fillings, which help strengthen teeth and provide you with a beautiful smile. We utilize the latest bonding technologies to ensure filling restorations are unnoticeable and last a long time.
Part of the problem with silver fillings is they could contain up to 50 percent mercury, which has been known to cause staining on the teeth, as well as the gums. In addition, over time, the silver colored filling starts to deteriorate, resulting in a weakened tooth structure. As such, the filling can fall out, cause the tooth to crack, and create small openings where bacteria and get under the tooth surface and lead to cavities.
Oasis Family Dental recommends replacing silver colored filling with tooth colored filings. Tooth colored fillings provide a tighter fitting filling and are color matched to the color of the tooth. Once the porcelain material has hardened, it creates a much stronger tooth structure to help keep the tooth intact.
