Say Goodbye To Old Amalgam Fillings

August 11th, 2017

Remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, one could see only pearly white molar surfaces.

If you are like many  adults, you started developing cavities fairly young and started receiving the ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings that were used by family dentists. As the years went by, two fillings became three. If you didn’t drink fluoridated water, three fillings may have became four. Now when you open wide – others see a mouthful of metal.

Fortunately, those with silver amalgam fillings can regain the smile of their youth. The replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure available at The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S. that can transform a smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.

Composite fillings are comprised of a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which creates a natural tooth-colored material. They are strong and durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.

Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages over silver, the preparation requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure. A conservative (as possible) restoration at The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S. leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material — your own enamel and dentin.

If you would like to improve your Westchester County smile by replacing silver-mercury fillings, we invite you to come in for a consultation. We’ll develop a treatment plan to address all areas of concern. If you have your teeth improved in combination with silver filling replacement, you’ll be pleased with your new beautiful smile.

The Smile you deserve, the smile you desire is closer than you think!

I can’t believe I waited all this time to change my veneers! Dr. Handschuh was right – my new veneers look great, natural and really brighten up my face. I am so thrilled!
