Exceptional quality, metal and mercury-free dentistry
It might not be a nice thought, but did you know that the “old style” grey amalgam metal fillings contain on average 50% mercury? Mercury is a highly toxic substance that has been linked with many diseases, and for this reason, Absolute Smiles is a completely Mercury free practice!
What are my options if I want my amalgams replaced?
This really depends on the size of the existing filling. The 2 main materials we use to fill teeth are:
1) Composite (white resin filling material), or
2) Dental ceramic (porcelain fillings/inlays and crowns).
Small to medium amalgams can often be replaced with a simple composite filling.
Larger amalgams, or those that are under a lot of load (for example, on back molar teeth) will usually require what is known as a “ceramic inlay” or “porcelain filling”.
Advantages of Porcelain fillings:
Long lasting and wear at the same rate as natural enamel
Blend seamlessly with the natural tooth colour
Contain no mercury or harmful chemicals
Conserve healthy tooth structure in the long term
Best of all, our specially trained dentists and dental technicians can complete your porcelain fillings all in ONE VISIT! Our advanced CEREC 3D technology means there are NO messy impressions, no temporary fillings and no weeks of waiting for your porcelain restoration to be made!
