Amalgam “silver” dental fillings have been used for decades as a restorative treatment option for patients. Amalgam fillings are made using various metals, including silver and mercury. Mercury is known as a toxic, liquid metal, often found in old thermometers. Due to the health risks of mercury, it has been removed from most household products. However, it remains in some patients smiles. At Richmond Dental, we are happy to remove and replace amalgam fillings, leaving our patients with a more healthy and beautiful smile.
As mentioned above, amalgam dental fillings contain toxic ingredients such as mercury and can be bad for your overall health. Our tooth-colored dental fillings contain no toxic ingredients and are designed to blend with the tooth and natural smile, making treatment pretty much unnoticeable. Tooth-colored dental fillings are durable and can last for many years with proper care.
Patients choose amalgam-free dental fillings due to the fact they are safer, healthier and even more aesthetically appealing than many alternatives.
