Your old amalgam fillings may cause problems for both your appearance and your oral health in the long-term. At Polish Dental Center Alpharetta, we provide amalgam removal to extract your old silver fillings from your mouth and replace them with tooth-colored filling materials.
Dental amalgam consists of a mixture of several different types of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, copper and other trace metals. Amalgam, or silver, fillings have been used in dentistry for over 100 years and are still used as an effective treatment by many dentists today. However, mercury can be harmful to your overall health, and when you receive an amalgam filling, the mercury contained in the filling material will be gradually released into your body.
Our dentists and team are dedicated to your health and will carefully remove these amalgam fillings. We are trained in safe amalgam removal and can usually complete this procedure in a single appointment.
After your amalgam fillings have been removed, we will clean the tooth and replace your filling with a composite alternative to restore your smile and give you a healthier and more natural-looking solution.
We invite you to call us at (770) 642-4711 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Richard Papp, Dr. Tiffany Jamison-Rand, or Dr. Ruby Truong and learn more about amalgam removal in Alpharetta, Georgia. We are dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy smile.
