Metal Fillings are a Thing of the Past

For many adults, picturing dental fillings brings up an image of metal-filled teeth. While mercury amalgam fillings were once the best option available, today there are new choices to consider. Amalgam fillings aren’t very attractive, sometimes leak metal ions to cause teeth discolouration, and can expand to cause fractures in teeth.

amalgamsBabin Dentistry uses only the latest composite and porcelain materials for our fillings. They provide the same natural white colour that is virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth, maintaining a healthy appearance for your smile. Consider asking about replacing your old metal fillings during your next visit – we’ll be glad to review your options.
