How happy are you with your smile? If you are taking good care of your pearly whites, but still sport old silver fillings in your mouth, you may be pleased to know that our Smiles Dental team in Camas, Washington offers safe amalgam removal. We do this for the health and beauty of our patients’ smiles.
Our dentists, Dr. Landon King and Dr. Burke Jardine, are trained to safely remove your old silver amalgam fillings and put in the more natural-looking composite dental fillings in their place. This is important because amalgam fillings are made of a combination of metals that include silver, mercury, tin, copper, and various other trace metals. Because it is mercury is released in small amounts from your fillings into your body, mercury can be can harmful to your overall health.
One good thing about composite fillings (or white dental fillings) is that not only are they completely mercury-free, but they don’t require cutting away healthy tooth structure to place the filling, as they bond to your natural tooth. Composite fillings also have the added benefit of blending in with your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible.
