Amalgam is a mixture of mainly silver, tin, copper and mercury. Dental Amalgam is the most frequently used filling material because it is strong and durable and it has been used for more than a century with good results.
Years ago, dental fillings were done with metal amalgam and that was the only choice. With the extraordinary advancement of modern dentistry, now we have better choices. You can have a tooth-coloured filling done. It is our aim and goal here to restore your damaged tooth whilst complementing and enhancing your smile!
When teeth are heavily decayed they may be too weak to survive with just a filling. By placing a crown, a tooth may be given a new lease of life. Even when a single tooth is lost a denture may not be required as a bridge can be made which spans the gap with a tooth attached to those next to the space.

Occlusion refers to the alignment of teeth and the way that the upper and lower teeth fit together (bite). Ideally, all upper teeth fit slightly over the lower teeth. The points of the molars fit the grooves of the opposite molar. The upper teeth keep the cheeks and lips from being bitten and the lower teeth protect the tongue.
Many things can cause white spots on the teeth. They can be a factor of nutrition, genetics, or an excess of fluoride intake. Sometimes they develop from braces covering areas of the teeth and the natural development of the tooth in children.Among the primary reasons of yellow teeth are food, habits, oral hygiene, and aging.
