Do you have old metal fillings? Ready to go all white?

The topic of white fillings and the question as to whether or not they should be replaces are often raised in our Glasgow dental clinic.

Are you conscious of having old amalgam or silver fillings in your mouth?

Are they a legacy of dentistry done decades ago?

Perhaps you notice when you’re caught on camera laughing or smiling widely and there in the darker recesses of your mouth are the tell-tale signs of fillings of yesteryear!

Today’s techniques and specially produced materials allow dentists to achieve great results that can play a key part in a smile makeover or part of a programme of cosmetic dentistry.

White fillings are a first-class way to return both the colour and shape to teeth.

By using dental composite bonding we can match the shade, translucency and texture of your own teeth. The new materials mean the fillings should be just as effective as the ones being replaced.

The end result far surpasses the old amalgam or silver fillings which can be unsightly and, as we stated earlier, unnatural when you smile.

It is important to have a full consultation and dental examination carried out before embarking on any such treatment.
