Chelsea Dental Fillings

If one of more of your teeth has been affected by decay, you need to get a filling. There are many different types of fillings that are used by dentists. They include: dental amalgams, composite resins, porcelain veneers, crowns, and cast gold restorations. The type of filling the dentist uses depends on certain factors such as the purpose and goal of the filling. If you have tooth decay, you should make an appointment with one of our Chelsea dental fillings experts at Chelsea Dental Arts. One of our dentists will go over your medical history, do a full and thorough oral examination and then discuss recommendations that are appropriate for your specific needs.

Dental Amalgams Chelsea

Dental Amalgams Chelsea

Dental amalgams are also known as silver fillings. They are made up of a combination of silver, tin and copper (about 50-55%) and about 45-50% mercury. Although there is controversy about the safety of dental amalgams due to mercury content, when the mercury is combined with the other materials, there is a chemical change that causes it to no longer be harmful to the body. Composite resins are also known as white fillings since they are tooth-colored and therefore aren’t noticeable. They’re made of a plastic mixture with silicon dioxide. They’re used to restore damaged or decayed teeth, to reshape teeth and even to improve one’s smile by changing the color of the teeth. One of our Chelsea dental fillings experts at Chelsea Dental Arts will take the time to educate you on dental amalgams, composite resins and other types of fillings. Our dentists will take the time to discuss your specific situation and possible options that would best suit your needs.
