White Fillings and Amalgam Removal

White Fillings and Amalgam Removal

White fillings, also known as composite fillings, are a modern alternative to the familiar old amalgam or ‘silver’ fillings. White fillings are made of a resin and glass mixture, and can be coloured to match your teeth perfectly, so no-one will know they’re there.

For a new dental repair, a white filling offers all the function of amalgam fillings, but without the mercury content.

It is also easy to replace old amalgam fillings with white fillings. Talk to your dentist during your appointment about how white fillings can give your smile a new lease on life.

Why replace you Amalgam (Silver) fillings?

  • Mercury is one of the most poisonous, naturally occurring substances on the planet
  • Amalgam Fillings continuously release poisonous mercury vapour
  • There is no safe or harmless level of mercury
  • Chronic mercury poisoning can directly and indirectly contribute to increase the risk and severity of every known disease and health issue

Safe removal

  • At Progressive Dental, we have not placed an Amalgam filling ever since our inception in 1991.
  • We practice safe removal by:
    • Minimising the amount of mercury that can be released from the filling
    • Intercepting the mercury that escapes before the patent breaths it in
    • Observe a protocol that includes cleaning the patient and disposing of the contaminated materials such as patient’s coverings, gloves, and rubber dams.
    • Using a high volume evacuation system
  • Replacement
    • At progressive Dental, we only use composite resin, porcelain and zirconium (all tooth coloured)
    • Out total body philosophy involves integrative doctors and naturopaths in a collaborative approach to total body health
    • Biocompatibility testing is available to all patients
