If you have old silver fillings in your beautiful smile? Are you tired of the obvious amalgam filling darkening your natural tooth color? If so, you will be pleased to know that our Smiles Dental team in Longview, Washington, offers safe amalgam removal for our patients’ smiles and for their health.
Our dentists, Dr. Jared Doman, Dr. Derrik Stark, Dr. Burke Jardine, and Dr. Nicholas Andros are happy to remove your silver amalgam fillings and replace them with composite dental fillings or another mercury-free restoration that we offer. Why is this important to you?
Amalgam fillings consist of a combination of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, copper, and other trace metals. Mercury may be harmful to your smile, because it is released in small amounts into your body through your fillings.
Fortunately, composite, or white dental fillings are completely mercury-free. We also provide composite fillings for our patients because they don’t require cutting away healthy tooth structure to place the filling, since they bond to your tooth. Not only that, but composite fillings have the added benefit of blending in with your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible.
At Smiles Dental we do not use any materials or products with mercury. Our dentists, Dr. Jared Doman, Dr. Derrik Stark, Dr. Burke Jardine, and Dr. Nicholas Andros have been trained in safe dental amalgam removal in Longview, Washington.
