Before & After Pictures


Mouth GuardWe recommend the tooth colored composite resin fillings or the white fillings for the teeth as they blend in naturally with the rest of the tooth, thus making them indistinguishable from the surrounding tooth. White Fillings allow teeth to be filled and rebuilt utilizing more aesthetically acceptable materials such as composite resin or porcelain.

White Fillings do not contain mercury and are an ideal choice for achieving long term strength in filled teeth. Teeth that are heavily filled with large silver amalgam or mercury fillings are at risk of fracturing because the tooth is spread apart by these traditional filling materials. Old silver amalgam fillings tend to leak and tend to expand outward as they age often causing the teeth to crack .The decay around these fillings tend to cause discoloration of the teeth and need to be replaced for aesthetic and functional reasons. These teeth can be rebuilt with composite material, which are bonded tightly to the teeth and hold the tooth together as opposed to spreading it apart, preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure.

Tooth-colored fillings made from composite resins are similar in color and texture to natural teeth thus making the fillings less noticeable, and much more attractive than other types of fillings.

This allows teeth to be safely and aesthetically restored achieving a more attractive smile

Before - silver amalgam or mercury fillings clearly visible and aesthetically unattractive

After - White Fillings achieve an aesthetic and natural looking finish whilst avoiding the use of mercury. They also serve to hold the filled teeth together rather than spreading them apart.


The posterior teeth can be filled using different materials and techniques-

• We recommend the tooth colored posterior composite resin restorations which follow the a traumatic restorative treatment protocol as they chemically bond and fortify the tooth structure and do not require excessive tooth reduction for mechanical retention as in the case of metallic fillings.

• Silver amalgam fillings are not recommended unless specifically indicated.

• Posterior reinforced glass ionomer restorations are specifically indicated in children and may also be used under composite resin fillings

• Posterior porcelain inlays are indicated in case of extensive tooth decay, and offer maximum esthetics and tooth support.

• Posterior gold inlays are one of the best and long lasting ways of restoring function of the posterior tooth.
