We are an amalgam-free office and use a range of tooth coloured filling materials.
Composite resin (plastic) is suitable for smaller cavities and porcelain may be a stronger solution in heavily decayed or filled teeth.
Amalgam contributes to stress fractures in teeth and we commonly find internal fractures in teeth with moderately sized silver fillings. Composite or plastic fillings are not always the best solution in big holes either.
We use either laboratory made porcelain or our in-house porcelain.
