Replace Old, Unattractive, Or Discolored Fillings With New Ones:
1. Composite (bonding) fillings
These are fillings made up of many different parts. In this case, these are fillings that look like your teeth. They can be very close to the color of your teeth. They are best for front teeth or parts of your teeth that are visible. They are one of the best ways to improve the health and beauty of your smile.
Crowns are used when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling or other type of restoration. When this happens, crowns are used. A crown is a piece of dental work that covers the whole surface, making it look and feel like it did before it was damaged. A crown protects and strengthens the rest of the tooth. It can be made of gold, porcelain, or other materials that look like teeth.
3. Inlays And Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are fillings that are made to fit your teeth. They can be made of composite resin, porcelain, or gold. Inlays and Onlays are ideally suited for the rear of teeth.They are used to repair teeth with large, unattractive fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma.
4. Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-shaped porcelain made for each person and permanently glued to the front surface of teeth. They are mostly used for the anterior teeth. They are a great way to fix teeth that are discolored, pitted, shipped, malformed, or a little crooked. Veneers are strong, look natural, and don’t get stained. This makes veneers a popular way to fix a smile that old, unattractive fillings have damaged.
Reasons To Get Your Old Fillings Replaced
- The Silver Fillings Might Look Ugly
The silver amalgam fillings that have been used for a long time were made of a metal alloy that had silver, copper, and mercury in it. In the same way, many metals break down and oxidize when exposed to water, and many will turn black when they are in a wet place.
- Old Fillings Can Cause Bacterial Growth
Our teeth become dark and unattractive over time because we have silver fillings. This makes us feel bad when we smile, laugh, and talk. When you get a filling that is too old and doesn’t look good, it can let bacteria get under and between the filling and the tooth. This can lead to tooth decay without the patient realizing it until later stages when it is too late.
