White fillings

When placing an amalgam metal filling dentists must cut away healthy tooth tissue to create an artificial ‘undercut’ or ‘lock’ to keep it in place.

Furthermore amalgam leaves a gap though which harmful bacteria enters, causing decay and further weakening the tooth.

At Smilecare we recommend white fillings because they bond more effectively, they even bond to the flat surface of teeth, and research shows they actually reinforce tooth structures.
