There are many options to restore a tooth. Just to reassure you that we do not use amalgam (mercury contained filling material) in Muswell Hill Smile. In most cases the best material to restore teeth is ceramic. some reasons are:
It is highly aesthetic: beautiful natural look due to colour match.
It has high bond Strength: Considerably stronger attachment to tooth material due to bonding mechanism.
It is healthier for gums : glazed ceramic surface provides less depository area for plaque accumulation which isn’t an irritating factor for gum.
It is highly resistance to abrasion and wear and abrasion compared to composite.
