Amalgam Removal (Ceramic Inlays)
Remove and replace your old fillings today
What is Amalgam? Why should I get it replaced?
Dental Amalgam is a common material used to fill dental cavities. Amalgam (also recognised as a silver filling) is created using a combination of different metals. Mercury, being a key material within Amalgam has most recently raised health concerns among patients, worried about the side-effects associated with having a filling which contains such a harmful substance. Numerous scientific studies have shown that Amalgam fillings release significant amounts of Mercury into your mouth throughout the lifetime of a silver filling.
Fear not.. You aren’t in immediate danger.
Although we recommend getting it replaced as soon as possible, Dental Amalgam doesn’t pose as an instant threat or health risk to most patients. It is, however, commonly seen as unattractive and often causes physical insecurities. The discolouration of a silver filling and the extent to which it stands out amongst your other teeth is seen as a physical issue among most patients. Not to worry… We have a solution!
Composite resign is the recommended material for replacing your Amalgam filling. This is a harmless ceramic substance which not only blends in with the natural colour if your tooth, but provides a more attractive and satisfying smile. This strong material achieves the same results as the Amalgam filling, although it poses less of a health risk and is more aesthetically pleasing.
