Amalgam Replacement with Composite Resin

Procedure Details

During a routine exam, Dr. William Shattuck identified a fractured tooth which was leaking under an old amalgam filling. At Radiant Dental Care in Haslet, TX Dr. Shattuck's goal is to be proactive and address areas of damage before they cause a catastrophic failure of the tooth. He identified the fracture and leakage occurring under an old amalgam restoration and removed the damaged part of the tooth as well as the old silver filling. Early identification of fractures around fillings as well as early identification of decay under fillings is key to keeping restorations small and preventing the need for root canals and crowns down the road. At Radiant Dental Care our goal is to be as conservative as possible and save our patients unnecessary headache and discomfort by addressing areas of damage proactively.
