Replacing your old, silver fillings with beautiful, natural looking tooth-colored fillings will brighten your smile and improve your confidence.
Artisan Dentistry can replace old silver crowns and fillings with composite materials in an effort to update old restorations and beautify their smiles. Dr. Paul Mathew, LVI-trained and highly skilled in creating the most beautiful, functional smiles in Salem, New Hampshire and Newburyport, Massachusetts.
The Risks of Amalgam
You’re probably aware that tooth-colored fillings are a safer and more attractive alternative to older amalgam fillings. There has been some controversy over whether the mercury in amalgam fillings poses a health risk, although the FDA has recently issued a statement to that effect. While dental experts like Dr. Mathew don’t suggest that people replace all of their silver fillings ‘just in case,’ it does make sense to replace them as needed with a composite filling that poses no such health risk.
Replacing Old Fillings
Replacing your old defective silver mercury fillings or your broken tooth with metal free natural looking porcelain crowns. Leaving no dark lines around the gum line for a more aesthetic and natural appearance. Dr. Mathew can precisely match the tooth-colored fillings with your natural teeth color so that your fillings are virtually invisible and you can enjoy a more attractive, silver-free and healthier smile.
The vast majority of patients today choose tooth-colored composite fillings to fill their cavities for these reasons. More and more, dental practices around the country are becoming ‘mercury-free’ practices, using only composite materials for crowns and fillings.
Replacing Old Crowns
Porcelain crowns protect and strengthen your tooth structure and can treat a variety of common dental problems, including:
- Repair of broken or fractured teeth
- Replacement of old large fillings
- Reinforcing a tooth after a root canal
- Treatment of large areas of decay
Porcelain crowns are created to perfectly match the size, shape, and color of surrounding teeth, blending invisibly for a beautiful smile. Porcelain crowns are noted for their durability as well, last a long time with good at home care and regular dental checkups.
