A filling is a very common procedure and most of us, at some point in our lives, will have a tooth cavity that needs attention.
Metal amalgam fillings are the reliable and established choice for fixing cavities and damage to the teeth. They are made from a combination of metals, including silver, copper, tin and mercury. When in this alloy form, mercury is perfectly safe.
Some patients may be concerned about the mercury used in their existing amalgam fillings. We understand you may wish to replace these with composite, and provide a safe amalgam filling removal service. We use high-strength aspiration to remove all amalgam residues from the mouth. We can then advise you on the best restorative options for your tooth.
