Amalgam Replacement

Worried about how those old metal fillings might be bad for your health?

Amalgam replacement is a great way to not only safeguard both your oral and overall health but to also improve your appearance so that your smile is at its best.

What is a amalgam replacement?

Amalgam replacement is a process designed to safely remove your old metal fillings and replace them with newer, stronger, tooth-coloured fillings.

Since old metal fillings often contain mercury and other heavy metals that are known to adversely affect your health, we professionally remove and replace these fillings following strict safety protocols tailored to your specific wants and needs so that you are protected from exposure to these harmful materials.

Why would I need amalgam replacement?

You may want to replace your amalgam fillings if you are concerned about the long-term systemic effects the toxic materials can have on your health, or if you have a medical condition that necessitates their removal.

Replacement may also be recommended due to damage or decay around your existing fillings. Since metal does not react to temperature and stress in the same way as your natural teeth, over time they can cause cracks or structural fractures requiring their replacement.

Newer tooth-coloured fillings will also restore and strengthen your teeth, returning your smile to its natural look and brilliance.
