When should you replace them?

When considering replacing amalgam fillings, it’s also important to consider the potential health risks associated with mercury exposure. Amalgam fillings have been used for decades, but recent studies have shown that mercury can leak from these fillings and potentially harm certain individuals. Additionally, composite fillings offer a more natural and seamless appearance that many people prefer over the metallic look of amalgam fillings. However, it’s always best to consult with a dental professional to determine the best course of action for your individual needs and concerns.

How do we replace amalgam fillings?

When it comes to your dental health, it’s important to take care of any issues as soon as possible. If you have an old amalgam filling that needs to be removed, rest assured that your dentist will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety during the process. Once the amalgam is removed, your dentist will use a non-metallic material to restore your tooth, improving your dental health and contributing to your overall well-being. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our dentist in Vancouver if you suspect that you need an amalgam removal. Your dental health is important, and your dentist is here to help you maintain it.
