Mercury-Free Dental Fillings in Grapevine
For decades, dentists all over the country have used amalgam fillings or metal crowns to fill cavities or repair broken teeth. However, amalgam—which is an alloy of several different types of metals—contains traces of mercury.
Though the amount is low, this still makes amalgam fillings a potentially dangerous substance. If ingested or leaked into your bloodstream, mercury can cause major health problems such as:
- Cardiovascular issues.
- Collagen diseases.
- Food allergies.
- Neurological disorders.
- A weakened immune system.
Luckily, dental care has come a long way in the last few years. Dr. Mason has worked hard to make sure our practice is as safe as it can be for all patients. So at Mason Dental, we’re proud to be an entirely, one hundred percent mercury-free dentist, including all dental fillings, crowns, and other restorations!
Amalgam Removal at Mason Dental
When you come in to have a cavity filled, we’ll use special white fillings instead of silver or amalgam dental fillings. These white fillings are made of a harmless ceramic composite. It’s the same color as your teeth and feels like actual bone, so it’ll look natural and sit comfortably inside your mouth.
If you currently have an amalgam filling from a past dentist, don’t worry! There are simple steps we can take to remove the harmful substance and get your mouth in prime condition again.
At Mason Dental, we have the technology to safely remove amalgam fillings and replace them with our mercury-free white fillings. Give us a call or come into our office to learn more!
