What Will You Replace My Amalgam Fillings With?

What filling materials can be used instead of dental amalgam?

What will you replace my amalgam fillings with?

When performing safe amalgam removal it is vital that the new filling or tooth restoration will be non-toxic and non-allergenic as well as being strong enough to rebuild the tooth.

There are a number of alternatives depending upon the size of the original filling, its position in the mouth, biting pressures, etc.

Teeth can be restored with composite tooth coloured fillings, onlays (larger laboratory processed “fillings”) and crowns. We will discuss these options thoroughly prior to commencing treatment.

How do you choose what material to use in my mouth?

This is determined considering cost, location in the mouth, metal and material sensitivities that are known to the patient, and other factors. This is best determined at the time of your initial visit

We use tooth coloured composite fillings from a German manufacturer as they are BPA-free hardwearing long-lasting, non-allergenic and non-toxic. Also, they are designed to expand and contract the same way your tooth does so they do not cause cracks and splits in your teeth, unlike amalgam fillings.
