I'm considering to switch sølvfyldningerne out with the plastic

Question:

I have a number of older sølvfyldninger as I am considering to switch out with the plastic fillings since I think it looks nicer.
The old fillings are not particularly visible but can be seen when I laugh and some of them are quite large.
What considerations should I make before I make the investment in a whiter smile?

Answer:

Dear Anonymous

It would be best to speak with your own dentist. Then together lay out a treatment plan over the fillings that are necessary to change and what can wait. Then you can take one after the other, without it being too expensive. It can be an expensive affair to change the sølvfyldningerne out to the plastic.

With kind regards

Answer:

Dear Susanne

I can well understand why you are frustrated. But the teeth wear out too with age, and it is quite normal that they break with time, especially when they have been drilled in before. The cause may be dental caries or infraktion in the tooth.

You can seek local authority about grants for dental care. So you must together with your dentist create a treatment plan that says what treatments are necessary and how much they cost. This must be included when you apply for grants. It is individually where/ or if we get some money for treatment, and this is taken into account what income you have.

Hope you can use my answer.
