12 Sep Replacing Your Amalgam Restorations
Did you know that many metal restorations contain trace amounts of mercury? Which means if you have an old amalgam restoration, you could benefit from finally replacing these fillings and crowns. Which is why our Dallas, TX holistic dental office is ready to safely remove these older restorations and offer a replacement that is lifelike and biocompatible.
The Downsides of Amalgam in Crowns and Fillings
Amalgam is a metal mixture that has been used for years to treat tooth decay or infection, often in the form of a filling or a dental crown. While effective, these contain trace amounts of mercury, which makes them unsafe for young children, pregnant women, and even the elderly. They’re especially dangerous to people with metal allergies. The material can also shrink and expand with time and temperature, which increases the risk of future infection. Our team offers an alternative that employs metal-free and biocompatible materials, providing results that look natural and last safely for years to come.
Replacing Your Dental Restorations
Have you or a loved one received a metal restoration in the past, and now want a more safe and lifelike option? Our team can help! We can replace the metal restoration with one of our holistic alternatives. We can safely remove the older filling or crown and can dispose of it in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner. We then secure a replacement that is custom-made and shaded to blend with your smile seamlessly, so you can enjoy optimal oral health and a beautiful smile.
Securing Holistic Alternatives
If you have a filling, we can provide one made from composite resin, a metal-free blend of acrylic-like and glass-like materials that contain no BPAs and which can be shaded to blend with the rest of your smile. Our team can use them for a filling or in a dental bonding procedure to repair damage or address cosmetic concerns. If you have an older crown, we can provide one made from ceramic, a durable material that handles daily bite forces with ease. We color match it to blend with your smile too, so you have lifelike results!
If you have any questions about how our team can replace older fillings and crowns with more lifelike and biocompatible options, then contact our team today. We would love to repair your teeth and improve your oral health with natural looking dental restoration, ones that are also safe and durable too.
