Royersford Dentist Offering Composite Filling Services In Royersford, Pottstown, Phoenixville, Collegeville, And Surrounding Communities

At Royersford Dental Health, we only use the latest technology in any of our restorative work. However, many people just like you, still have old silver or mercury fillings in their mouths from years ago. These fillings are not only outdated and unsightly, but ultimately result in an overall weaker tooth structure. Porcelain inlays and tooth colored restorations (onlays) are a part of todays standard in modern dentistry. These fillings are virtually undetectable by the untrained eye and stronger than old silver fillings thanks to new bonding technologies.

Disadvantages Of Silver Fillings

Silver fillings are a thing of the past due to many of their drawbacks. Silver fillings, over time, can wear down and break thus leaving the part of the tooth exposed to potential cavities once again.

Did you know silver fillings are made up of 50% mercury? That means they can actually corrode, leak and even cause staining on your teeth and gums. Fortunately, you can have your silver fillings replaced with natural tooth-colored fillings.

Advantages Of Tooth-Colored Restorations

Tooth-colored fillings are the standard today over old silver fillings. Resin onlays are bonded to the tooth creating a natural look and having a tight, exceptional fit. These restorations can be used where the tooth has been damaged, broken, or lost. The overall result is a tooth that remains intact and is much stronger.

Did you know the resin used in the tooth-colored restoration contains fluoride, which can help prevent decay? The resin acts and looks like your natural teeth and does not need to be placed at the gum line meaning the end result is a beautiful smile!
