Mercury Amalgam Removal

A routine treatment for dental decay is to use fill the area with an amalgam filling. But what is decay?

Using higher magnification and powerful lighting, it is easier to detect decay at an early stage to prevent excessive tooth damage. When cavities are small, they are much easier and less expensive to treat.

Early tooth decay does not tend to show many physical signs. Sometimes the tooth looks healthy, but we may be able to see from an x-ray whether you have any decay under the enamel, any possible infections in the roots, or any bone loss around the tooth.

If theĀ decay is not too serious, our cosmetic dentist will remove all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling.

We can also safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings. Here’s a video that shows this process and the possible results:
