Silver Filling Removal

Silver Filling Removal

Why Do Silver Fillings Need to Be Removed?

Old silver fillings can crack over time and “leak” bacteria, thus causing a recurrent cavity under the filling. Recurrent cavities can lead to root canal therapy and a need for a crown. Broken silver fillings can be conservatively replaced with another silver filling, or composite resins (tooth color fillings), and larger silver fillings can be replaced with porcelain onlays.

Natural-Look, Tooth-Color Fillings

The composite resin we use for natural-look fillings comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour – all in the interest of creating the perfect match for your other teeth in overall proportion and tone). And the resin is bonded to ensure a seal is formed to reduce any chance of leakage (a common problem with silver fillings).

NOTE: With an intraoral camera, we can show you the very small and hidden cracks in your silver fillings. Call us for a complementary consultation.
