Amalgam Replacement

Procedure Details

Because of his years of experience replacing silver fillings, Dr. Shattuck knew that the hairline fracture visible in the silver filling coincided with decay under it and extended into the tooth itself. At Radiant Dental Care in Haslet, TX Dr. William Shattuck takes a proactive approach to replacing silver fillings, often times identifying issues with older fillings when replacement is as simple as removing the silver filling, the decayed and damaged part of the tooth, and replacing it with a bonded, tooth colored restoration. Had this patient waited another few months to replace this silver filling, the crack that you see would have continued to grow and the patient would have needed a crown on this tooth. Dr. Shattuck's proactive approach saved the patient time, and money and allowed the patient to retain more of her natural tooth.
