Replacing old fillings

Many patients ask to have their old silver (amalgam) fillings replaced with white (composite) ones. For most patients this is not a problem as old fillings tend to have leaky margins and warrant replacement. If you have old silver fillings and wish to have them replaced please book to have Dr. Jomha take a took that them first. He can discuss treatment time and what to expect afterwards.
