Amalgam/Mercury-Free Dentistry – Your General Cranbrook Dentist
Prior to the changes in consumer preferences, the materials that were conventionally used to treat a cavity filled tooth were often made out of metal based dental amalgam. However, as time progressed and patients opted for a more aesthetically pleasing option for dental fillings, tooth coloured, amalgam free fillings became the preferred choice for treating teeth that have been damaged or have decayed as a result of cavities. Here at Victoria Avenue Dental, the team led by your general Cranbrook dentist, Dr. Brett Bevans can assist you in achieving a brighter and whiter smile with amalgam free or mercury free fillings. Patients who are suffering from damaged, cracked, or decayed teeth are often more hesitant to smile due to the visual appearance of their teeth. With amalgam free fillings, patients can regain a sense of confidence as they smile, due to the natural looking effect that amalgam free fillings can give when placed on your teeth.
At Victoria Avenue Dental your general dentist, Dr. Brett Bevans value how important your teeth and smile are to you. As such, Dr. Bevans and the team will work together with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is designed to resolve dental issues, such as damaged or decayed teeth. Your general dentist can offer you suitable alternatives to conventional metal, amalgam, and mercury based dental fillings. This includes fillings made out of porcelain, ceramics, composite resin, and glass ionomer materials. All of which are tooth coloured options that blend in with the rest of your teeth.
The procedure or process to acquire your amalgam free filling is relatively simple. Your general Cranbrook dentist will essentially extract or remove cavity filled tissue and residue from the affected tooth and area. Once the decay has been removed, the area will be filled with the tooth coloured, amalgam free dental filling and sealed to complete the process. If you are interested in this alternative to conventional dental amalgam fillings, contact your general dentist from Victoria Avenue Dental today.
