Are you concerned about the safety of your amalgam fillings? If you've received one or more amalgam fillings, our doctors at Northwest Natural Dentistry are specially trained in the art of mercury removal. Using conservative dentistry techniques and state-of-the-art technology, our doctors can safely and effectively remove dental crowns or fillings that were made with potentially dangerous materials and replace them with alternatives that support your total body health!
What are Amalgam Fillings?
It was recognized only a few decades ago that the metals and mercury-filled ingredients found in amalgam fillings may be dangerous. While amalgam fillings have spent years as the standard of care due to their durability, modern dental technology has provided us with healthier options.
Today's high-quality amalgam-free tooth-colored fillings and crowns are a widely accepted alternative. Because they are safer and specially designed to naturally match the color of your smile, amalgam-free fillings have set a new standard of dental care. At Northwest Natural Dentistry, our holistic approach to oral health includes ultra-safe fillings. Our tooth-colored dental fillings make it easy to restore your smile without having to worry about the potential dangers of mercury!
Are Mercury Amalgam Fillings Safe?
Even though mercury had been deemed safe by the American Dental Association and Food and Drug Administration, some patients develop aversions to the mercury in their amalgam fillings. At Northwest Natural Dentistry, our team understands your concerns and is here to help you achieve your dental health goals. We also recognize that some patients are sensitive to metals and deserve a safe alternative!
Will I Have A White Filling After My Amalgam Is Removed?
Depending on the age and size of your silver mercury filling, our doctors may opt to replace it with a natural, metal-free, tooth-colored filling. If the amalgam is particularly large or it has caused the tooth to crack, a tooth crown may be a more stable alternative.
During your safe mercury removal consultation, our doctors will discuss your options, as well as expected outcomes so that you can make an educated choice that works best for your dental health and lifestyle.
