Restorative Dental Treatments
Restorations have come a long way since the amalgam, silver or gold materials of the past. At Macquarie Street Centre we offer our patients long-lasting tooth-coloured solutions to treat decay, protect heavily worn teeth or replace defective restorations. Our clinicians use their thorough knowledge of material science and clinical outcome data to choose the right material for the right situation.
Removing Old Fillings
If you have fillings dating back to childhood, chances are they are amalgam, silver or gold. While these restorations have historically provided patients with good longevity, they are unsightly and may affect your presentation, ability to socially interact, smile and laugh. They do not bond to tooth structure so are prone to staining, leakage and can weaken the tooth.
It’s relatively simple to replace these old fillings using a resin tooth-coloured restoration. For larger restorations, we recommend using an inlay or onlay, made of porcelain and customised to the shape of your tooth and harmonised with your bite relationship.
