White fillings are a cosmetic alternative to grey amalgam fillings. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look. A mouth full of metal fillings can often make a person look older.
A couple of years ago at age 67 I decided it was high time I had my teeth sorted out.
I still have all my own teeth but they were nearly all filled with old silver fillings
and my top front teeth were crooked and worn.
I hadn't been to a dentist for a few years because my old long-term dentist retired and I was reluctant to go to someone new.
A flyer from MSC appealed to me and I went to Midlands Smile Centres for an appraisal.
Dentures were not an option as far as I was concerned so a programme was drawn up to attend
to the essential work on the molars and premolars first, using crowns where necessary and
replacing old fillings with new white ones.
This was followed by a whitening session then reforming the 6 top front teeth with a combination
of crowns and veneers.
I could not be more pleased with the result, I now have a set of teeth I can be proud of,
I am no longer self-conscious about showing my teeth when smiling.
Thoughout every stage the dentist has been reassuring, has explained everything and has not spared
any attention to detail, for example matching the shade of the veneers and crowns exactly to my good
lower front teeth, making my "new" teeth look completely natural.
I cannot speak too highly of the friendly and efficient service I have had.
This treatment has obviously cost me a small fortune but worth every penny - I now have a lovely set of
natural looking teeth for life and will continue with regular checkups and treatment at MSC.
