Do you hate the look of the old silver coloured fillings in your mouth? Did you know that your old fillings may also cause other health concerns and could lead to tooth loss? There been extensive research about how silver-mercury fillings affect your overall health. Also, over time these old fillings can begin to leak, allowing bacteria into the tooth which can cause cavities and tooth decay to begin underneath these old metal restorations. This can cause major damage to your tooth structure, eventually leading to chipped or cracked teeth and/or the need for root canal treatments and larger restorations. These old metal restorations can even affect your gums, causing permanent dark blemishes on the gum tissue, also known as "amalgam tattoos."
These are just a few of the reasons that at Barrie Smile Centre, we offer a variety of the highest quality, metal-free options, including white resin fillings, and porcelain onlays, crowns, and bridges. Using today's modern technology and modern dental materials, we are able to transform your smile with natural-looking and long-lasting results.
