Using Mercury Safe Dentistry to Remove and Replace Mercury Fillings

Early intervention and treatment of dental health issues are critical to ensuring that you take care of your smile and avoid further damage to the teeth and gums. If poor oral hygiene habits or excessive consumption of carbs and sugars cause tooth decay, you need to work with a mercury-safe dentist in Azusa, California, to seek treatment. At Gentle Care Dentistry, cavities are treated with tooth-colored dental fillings.

When might I need a dental filling?

Dental fillings may be used to treat cavities caused by tooth decay, which is why they are one of the most common procedures in dentistry. Fillings also repair minor chips or cracks in teeth and fill in gaps between teeth. If you have any of the below signs or symptoms, you will need to visit your dental team as soon as possible for a checkup and evaluation:

Dr. Brianne Luu can diagnose and recommend the best treatment for your individual needs. Depending on the severity of the dental decay, a filling may be recommended to restore your damaged tooth.

Why should I choose composite resin fillings?

Our team at Gentle Care Dentistry encourages patients to consider composite resin fillings over silver amalgam fillings. Studies show that silver amalgam fillings can lead to mercury toxicity or infection. Instead, composite resin fillings protect the areas of decay while remaining esthetic, as the material is color-matched to your natural teeth for a perfect smile! Using a mercury-safe dentist to remove mercury fillings and replace them with composite materials is a safer and more effective way of restoring a tooth affected by tooth decay.
