White Fillings at our Peterborough Clinic

White fillings are becoming increasingly popular and offer our patients a safer and virtually invisible alternative to traditional amalgam fillings. No more unsightly black appearance in the lower and upper jaw when you laugh or open your mouth.

At our Peterborough clinic we are able to replace existing amalgam fillings with colour-matched, mercury-free white fillings made of porcelain or durable resin to provide a durable and strong alternative. As JK Dental is moving to provide only amalgam-free treatment, new fillings can also be colour matched white fillings for a more natural look. 

White Fillings vs Amalgam - The Health Benefits

Unlike white fillings, traditional silver fillings can eventually corrode and leak, staining the filling and give the tooth an unsightly black appearance. There is also a lot of evidence to show that amalgam can also cause parts of the tooth to break around the filling. One of the principle components of amalgam composition is mercury. Overexposure to mercury can have debilitating effects on humans.

At our Peterborough clinic we have staff that are experienced and qualified in safe amalgam removal and disposal, ensuring the proper safety of both our patients and staff.

If you would like further information about white fillings and how we can improve your smile, please call us on 01733 572821.
