Does amalgam free fillings treatment hurt?
We perform this treatment under local anaesthetic so it should not be painful. You may feel some sensitivity in the first few days after treatment.
Does this treatment affect eating?
We recommend waiting 48 hours before eating or drinking any dark food or liquid – amalgam free fillings are more susceptible to staining in the days after treatment. The good news is you should find eating more pleasurable with your new filling.
Can I have more than one filling?
Patients can have a number of fillings placed in one visit.
How should I take care of my filling?
Brush twice a day in the usual way. Avoiding putting undue pressure on the filling by, for example, biting down on a pen lid.
Is this treatment safe?
Amalgam fillings have been around for years. This is a safe treatment when performed by an experienced dentist.
