Filling replacements

Replace your old fillings

Say goodbye to silver mercury amalgam fillings!
Are you unhappy with the appearance of the silver-mercury fillings in your mouth? Did you know that your old fillings are also a health concern and can lead to tooth loss? Not only has there been extensive research about how silver-mercury fillings affect your overall health, but over time these old fillings leak allowing to cavities forming underneath them. This eventually causes damage to the structure of your teeth, leading to cracked teeth and/or the need for root canal treatment and crown therapy. Silver-mercury fillings affect the gum tissue, causing permanent staining of the gums, also known as “amalgam tattoos.”
This is why we offer a variety of the highest quality, metal-free fillings, including white plastic fillings, porcelain onlays, crowns, and bridges. Today’s advanced materials allow us to transform your smile with natural-looking and long-lasting results. By bonding the new restorations to your teeth, we can create a stronger, healthier smile.
Porcelain and plastic replacement options in Barrie Innisfil

Porcelain and plastic replacement options:

Porcelain or Plastic?
Both materials can be used, however we recommend porcelain because it is a stronger, custom lab fabricated restoration that provides durability and strength to the remaining tooth structure. Plastic is a great option for small fillings. When used for large restorations it doesn't last as long before needing to be replaced. With constant replacement, eventually the tooth will require a porcelain restoration.
