Mercury Free Dentistry

Image of smile with teeth showingMercury has a long history of use in different medical fields, including dentistry. Relatively recently, however, mercury has been determined a hazard to your health.

At Premier Dental Esthetics, you don’t have to worry about mercury being a part of your procedure. We are proud to offer mercury free dentistry and a safer, healthier experience for our patients.

What Mercury Free Dentistry Means

Historically, many dentists have used silver and amalgam fillings for their clients. The problems then came from the trace amounts of mercury that were often found in these fillings. In some cases, this mercury made its way from the patient’s tooth into their bloodstream, causing significant health problems.

Your safety is our first priority. One of the ways we put your health first is by not using amalgam fillings in any of our procedures. Instead, we use white fillings that look more natural while also being mercury free.

Why It Matters

The health problems resulting from mercury poisoning can be serious. Mercury in the bloodstream can lead to neurological disorders, a compromised immune system, cardiovascular issues, and even food allergies.

All of these risks can be avoided through mercury free dentistry. You can feel secure in your safe, mercury free white fillings at Premier Dental Esthetics.

Amalgam Filling Removal

If you have had amalgam fillings in the past and are worried about their potential mercury content, come into our office! We offer amalgam filling removal with vapor vacuum technology, meaning the removal process is safe for both you and your dentist.

Our Dentairvac will keep the air clear of any airborne toxins during your amalgam removal procedure. We can gently replace your amalgam with a white filling that is safer and healthier for your mouth. You can experience a safe amalgam filling removal process with greater peace of mind afterward.

White Fillings

Where silver and amalgam fillings are clearly visible, our mercury free white fillings mean no one will know you’ve had a filling at all! We can match the color of your filling to the color of your teeth, all while using safe, mercury free materials.
