Silver Fillings have been around for times immemorial. This treatment option has been around for more than a century.Till about twenty years ago these were about the only fillings available to us.
Mercury is used to to mix with the Silver powder granules prior to filling the tooth.Today there is greater awareness about the Toxic effects of Mercury. Hence they have been phased out in our practice.
This is the age of Minimally Invasive Dentistry.
While doing a filling the infected portion of the tooth is cleaned by a drill. Care is taken that there is no damage to the healthy tooth structure during this process.
The latest advances in the Dental Materials allow us to actually clean using a MINIMALLY INVASIVE TECHNIQUE and the filling is placed. using the State of The Art Filling Materials, imported directly from the West, the tooth is restored to its original shape. The end result is such that it is actually difficult to make out where the filling actually starts.
At “Sri Dental Clinic”, special care is taken to avoid any cutting of the healthy tooth structure. Only the infected portion of the tooth is cleaned out.
