Silver (amalgam) Filling Removal
You’ve been asking yourself, what can be done if I have old and unsightly fillings? Old, dark and unsightly fillings can now be replaced with esthetic filling materials such as resins and porcelain fillings or crowns.
In fact, here at Riverview Dental Associates of Concord, we have been replacing amalgam fillings for well over 20 years. Resin and porcelain filling materials, although more technique sensitive and costly than amalgam filling material, is kinder to the tooth and more aesthetically pleasing to the smile.
Air purification, high speed suction and oxygen protocols are utilized when removing amalgam fillings as they may release mercury vapors into the environment. We have committed to reducing methyl mercury in the environment by eliminating this restorative material from our treatment choices.
