Amalgam Fillings Penticton

Silver amalgam restorations can persist for many years but will ultimately begin to tarnish and corrode. When this happens, the restoration repels away from the tooth and forms an opening. Microbes are then able to enter the opening producing harm and caries beneath the filling. When this in uncovered by your oral health doctor, the worn filling will need to be pulled and replaced with a tooth-coloured ceramic filling.

One of the benefits of a porcelain dental fixture is that they can be bonded directly to the tooth, producing a really strong restoration. Furthermore, with porcelain fillings, less natural tooth will need to be extracted in preparation for the cementing process.

Porcelain fillings are more frequently used in cases where there is only a slight amount of pressure on the tooth and the deterioration is mild to moderate. When the damage is too serious and there is not adequate structure on the tooth remaining, a tooth crown might be necessary to help handle the full forces of chewing and biting.

If multiple silver fillings are existing, it is best to supplant a few silver fillings at one time rather than doing the treatment numerous times. The silver amalgam restorations are pulled with a dentistry hand tool, then the surfaces can be cleaned carefully before the porcelain fixture can be contoured and shaped to fit the clients specific bite.
