Older amalgam or “silver” fillings often contain mercury, and can cause problems for the patient when it comes time to remove or replace them. Our office is mercury-free and has strict processes in place to contain mercury exposure and offer a safe removal of such fillings with no adverse effects.
If you’ve received an amalgam filling, it is composed of silver, tin, copper and mercury, which is toxic to the body.
Our office team is specially trained in mercury filling removal. We use special masks and protective materials to safely remove and dispose of mercury fillings.
