Do you have a mouth full of metal fillings? If yes, you’re not alone. 

Not only are silver amalgam fillings unsightly but have been proven to pose  potential health risks. Amalgam is a metal that is usually composed of approximately 50% mercury, 25-30% silver, 15% tin and 8% copper. Small amounts of other trace metals are used as well.

In contrast to amalgam, composite resin or ceramic are tooth-coloured and provides a more attractive and appealing smile. Many of our patients enjoy not only an aesthetically pleasing smile, but an increase in their overall health after amalgam removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Amalgam removal treatment is a dental procedure that involves removing old or damaged amalgam fillings from the teeth and replacing them with more modern, composite resin that are tooth-coloured.

Amalgam removal treatment is necessary because amalgam fillings contain high levels of mercury, which can be toxic to the body over time. Additionally, amalgam fillings can also crack, leak, and cause damage to the tooth structure.

Amalgam removal treatment is typically performed using a local anesthetic and special dental tools to remove the old filling. The dentist will then prepare the tooth for a new filling and place a new, tooth-colored filling material.

The benefits of amalgam removal treatment include a reduction in the levels of mercury in the body, improved oral health, and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance of the teeth.
