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. But amalgam—a mixture of different types of metals—is a potentially dangerous substance that contains traces of the toxin mercury. 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 his practice is as safe as it can be for all patients. So at Mason Dental, we’re proud to be entirely one hundred percent mercury-free in all our procedures!
Amalgam Removal at Mason Dental
When you come in to have a cavity filled, we’ll use special white fillings instead of amalgam or silver 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 or metal 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!
