Amalgam-Free Dentistry

Amalgam Free Dentistry

A natural alternative to silver fillings

For many people, the unsightly appearance of silver amalgam fillings spoils their smile.

That’s why our patients at Helena Street Dental Midland are choosing to have porcelain or composite tooth-coloured restorations.

Amalgam restorations are comprised of around fifty percent Mercury and were the preferred restorative solution. With safer and tooth coloured choices available such as porcelain and ceramic, at Helena Street Dental Midland we aim to avoid using amalgam fillings.

Removing an amalgam filling is a simple and pain-free procedure. Before commencing we will discuss the process with you as each filling is different.

Just like receiving any other filling, the area around the tooth is numbed with a local anaesthetic, ensuring you are completely comfortable. A rectangle shaped piece of rubber called as a dam is used to isolate the tooth and keep the area clean.

After the safe removal of your amalgam filling, your tooth is restored with a new tooth-coloured porcelain or composite filling, rejuvenating your smile and boosting your confidence.

If you have an amalgam filling and would like to discuss the option of replacing it with a tooth-coloured alternative, schedule a check-up appointment with the Helena Street Dental Midland team.
