Why Should You Replace Silver Amalgam Fillings In My Teeth?

 Let’s be honest, most everyone knows that old silver fillings contain mercury. What gets a lot less press is that fact that amalgam fillings, though durable and relatively inexpensive, have two little-known dark secrets: they darken teeth and lead to fractures.

Replace Amalgam Fillings That Darken Teeth

This picture is pretty obvious. But it usually takes seeing a picture of someone’s mouth to realize just how visible the silver fillings are in a smile. Amalgam fillings can show up as grayed or darkened areas on individual teeth or as shiny dark patches, depending on whether you’re seeing the darkening effect of a large filling or the filling itself.

Replace Amalgam Fillings That Can Fracture Teeth

Although amalgam fillings are a long-lasting restoration option, they can possibly cause tooth fractures. These types of fillings are made from a mixture of metals that constantly expand and contract with temperature changes in the mouth. Over many years, this micro expansion and contraction is thought to apply pressure on the surrounding tooth structure, causing the tooth to weaken over time. A weakened tooth is vulnerable to fractures.

Modern Restorations are Whiter and Healthier

Removing and replacing amalgam fillings with a more clinically advanced tooth-colored restoration is a double win. A modern restoration brightens and corrects tooth darkening, and it stops the expansion and contraction that contributes to weakened teeth.

Straightforward and Knowledgable

Dr. Bec was very friendly and answered all my questions in a straightforward manner, so it was one of the few times I didn't feel awkward about asking about my dental concerns. The staff was very friendly also.
I would highly recommend giving this place a try if you are on the hunt (like I was) for a new dentist.
