Replacing silver amalgam fillings is a great step into 2020 for a healthy smile

If you’ve been following our blog or have come in for an appointment of your own, you’ll know how we feel about those silver mercury amalgam fillings that have been used for more than 150 years. We think there’s a better choice, not only for a healthy mouth, but for a brighter and whiter smile.

Due to its toxicity, countries, including Canada, introduced measures to reduce or eliminate mercury in products and control its emission into the environment. Plus, the Canada/Ontario Agreement has placed mercury on a list of toxic materials targeted for eventual elimination. Even still, mercury is still widely used and considered “safe” for use in family dental care.

We disagree.

Composite Resin is the more modern and healthy choice for tooth restoration. Strong enough to hold up to the force of the human bite, but with the flexibility to allow dentists to colour match to your natural tooth, this is the option for those worried about both restoration and aesthetics.

When You Know Better…

As the saying goes, “When you know better, you do better,” and we do better when we offer our patients the gift of a more beautiful and whiter smile, inside and out. Removing amalgam fillings is not only a healthy option for your mouth, but a more aesthetically pleasing one as well. Gone are the dark recesses of your filled tooth, replaced with a seamless filling that blends right in.

With just one consultation, find out what it will take to smile without those flashes of silver. It’s probably a lot less work than you’d think, when you work with a team experienced and qualified in the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (S.M.A.R.T.).
