Dental & Tooth Fillings

Tooth-Coloured & Porcelain Fillings

Many people these days are conscious of their oral health and the effect it has on their general wellbeing. Traditionally, metal amalgam (mercury) was the only material of choice for people suffering from dental decay and cavities in need of a dental filling. Concerns have been raised about the use of dental amalgam because it contains mercury. There is an ongoing controversy as to whether having mercury fillings in our mouth poses any risk.

Depending on your opinion you may opt to have tooth coloured dental fillings instead.


Porcelain Dental Fillings

Dental porcelain has properties similar to tooth enamel. It is a tooth coloured substance that is partly translucent, that absorbs and reflects light to mimic the properties of a pearly white shine.

A porcelain inlay or onlay, on occasion, has superior properties over that of a traditional dental filling.

With the advancement in dental technology, there are many other alternatives to amalgam such as direct composite (tooth coloured) dental fillings, and indirect porcelain fillings (Inlays/ Onlays).
