In our dental practice, dentist only uses white fillings. There has been research that suggests amalgam fillings are not 100% safe, and for this reason some people opt to have them removed.
Dr Richard can replace patients’ amalgam fillings with tooth coloured alternatives. He provides safe amalgam removal for those patients who request it. At an initial consultation appointment a full dental examination is carried out any any necessary tests are performed. A treatment plan is formulated which includes the order of filling removal and the most compatible materials to be used for replacements. Please advise our receptionist when booking in that this is what you want. During amalgam filling removal, for your comfort, a rubber dam sheet is placed to isolate your tooth from the rest of the mouth.
