Tooth Coloured Fillings
Given the opportunity to make an informed choice, the majority of people would want a natural looking tooth coloured fillings.
So why would you want silver fillings that show when you talk or laugh? Not only ugly, but silver fillings also weaken the tooth making them more likely to crack or break. They also contain mercury viewed by some as toxic.
Tooth coloured fillings actually bond to the remaining natural tooth. This helps restore more of the original strength of the tooth as they require less removal of your own natural enamel, the tooth is less likely to fracture.
Periodontal disease, otherwise known as gum disease, will require treatment to restore gums to their optimum health. This is not only to ensure the health of your mouth but also to prevent major health problems from occurring as a result of periodontal disease.
