Silver fillings unfortunately expand more than natural tooth structure does when exposed to hot drinks or food.
Over time this causes significant fracturing to occur within the tooth. These lead to an eventual breaking of the cusp or in worse
situations, to teeth that break so badly that they need a root canal or even extraction.
To avoid this situation you can remove the
unsightly silver fillings with beautiful white porcelain onlays or inlays. These are done in one visit and are
guaranteed for at least 5 years! The porcelain expands like natural tooth structure so further breakdown of the tooth will not occur.
