Removal of Mercury Fillings
There is much controversy over the use of mercury-containing filling material (amalgam). Mercury is a known environmental and biologic toxin. It must be treated as a hazardous material both before it goes into the mouth and after it is removed from the mouth.
Although the American Dental Association maintains that mercury amalgam fillings are “safe and acceptable”, many scientific studies have cast doubt on this position. For our health and the health of our patients, it is our policy not to offer mercury-containing fillings.
State-of-the-art adhesive dentistry allows us to replace unsightly dark mercury amalgam fillings with beautiful tooth-colored restorations. This restores teeth to their natural beauty and function. Your teeth and smile will look years younger.
