Can I change my silver fillings?

User Level:
Posted by: onetooth  (11 years ago)

I have just had three silver fillings on my right molars and I do not like them. They will show when I laugh and they look so horrible. Is it possible to change them into white or anything not as noticeable as the one I have? Anyone who had tried this?

Thanks a lot!

i had all of my silver fillings taken out a few years back. They replaced it with a clear filling, not sure of what it is called. I also did it for aesthetic reasons and now you can not see any of them :)

i recommend doing this if it makes you feel self conscious, it didn't hurt at all and wasn't too expensive either.

Yes it is possible.:-) You can ask your dentist to replace it with the white composite fillings.

I also changed my silver dental fillings over to white ones for cosmetic purposes. I felt better after.:-)
