White Fillings & Mercury Removal

Fillings are used to repair teeth affected by decay, cracks, fractures or trauma. Paramount Dental practitioners are able to replace your old fillings or apply new white fillings to repair damaged teeth.

Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths and the fillings of today can be natural looking as well as do the job they're meant to do.  Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.

Here at Paramount Dental Sydney, all new fillings are 100% safe composite resins which are amalgam and mercury free. Any mercury amalgam fillings you have can be replaced with 100% safe white fillings. These can be matched to almost any colour so no one need ever know you have a filling in your teeth.

factsheet


What are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings are tooth coloured and are made from powdered glass quartz, silica or other ceramic particles added to a resin base. After the tooth is prepared, the filling is bonded onto the area and a light shone onto it to help the filling set. The dentist will choose a shade to match your own teeth, although over time staining can happen.

What are Amalgam Fillings?

Amalgam fillings are silver coloured. They are made by combining mercury and a silver alloy (50% mercury, 35% silver, 15% tin, copper and other metals).

We do not use amalgam fillings in our dental practice and strongly recommend removal of these fillings.
