Say no to crack!

One thing that we see with large metal fillings is cracking.
In this photo you can clearly see a crack running, from a large metal filling,
down the side of tooth towards the gums.
This crack will continue to progress until it may eventually split the tooth.

We removed the old metal filling and placed a new composite (white) one.
These newer types of filling bond much better to the tooth structure
and should help avoid any further cracking.
