One common complaint we hear from people is that they are unhappy with the appearance of old metal fillings in their mouths. Some people even feel that old metal fillings can be a health concern. Not only has there been extensive research about how these old metal fillings may affect your overall health, but over time they may begin to leak, allowing bacteria to get inside the tooth; this can actually cause cavities to form underneath your old metal fillings. This can often cause major damage to the structure of your teeth before you experience any symptoms.
These older silver coloured restorations can even start affect the health of the gum tissue and cause permanent staining of the gums.
At Markham Smile Centre, we offer a variety of the high quality, metal-free options, including white resin (plastic) fillings, as well as porcelain restorations. Using the newest dental materials, we are able to transform your smile with natural-looking and long-lasting results.
