If left untreated, the infection can spread down to the base of your teeth. Dental fillings can fix broken or decayed tooth. The traditional dentist used silver/dark looking fillings called Amalgam. As the term suggests, the materials were an amalgamation of multiple metals such as mercury, iron, copper, silver etc. This filling has a major drawback; 50% of the material is mercury. Imagine mercury in the thermometer expanding with temperature changes. This means Amalgam fillings are prone to expand and contract inside the tooth, resulting in tooth cracks and fractures. The good news is, our dental clinic no longer uses Amalgam anymore. The newer and better dental filling is now available. It is called Resin Composite and GIC (Glass Ionomer Cement). The amazing thing about this material is that it is tooth coloured (i.e. Tooth repaired will look like a natural tooth) and mechanically stable (i.e. no thermal changes). Most importantly, it will structurally bond to your tooth structure and strengthen your teeth. If you wish to find out more in detail, please contact us on our phone 02 6767 1601
