How can I replace an old amalgam filling?

Your comment has been received. Thank you.

Metal amalgam fillings can be replaced with composite fillings: these are white tooth­colored fillings and do not have mercury in them like amalgam fillings. The new composite fillings will be color­matched to your existing teeth. In most cases, this can be done in just one appointment, but if many fillings are required, it may be more comfortable for you to break up the sessions into several visits so you don’t spend too much time in the chair.
