Safe Amalgam Filling Removal and White Fillings in Brisbane
Why white fillings are the healthy choice!
Although amalgam fillings have been used for decades, these “metal” or “silver” fillings, are an alloy that contains around 50% mercury (one of the most toxic elements found on the periodic table). And although this type of filling has been utilised for so many years, we use BPA free composite or CEREC hybrid ceramic when fillings are required at our Brisbane CBD dental clinic
Furthermore we can safely remove those old amalgam fillings and replace them with the white fillings are healthier and safer for the human body.
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal
We provide maximum safety in the removal of mercury fillings based on recommendations of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
Patients get their amalgam fillings removed for many reasons. Majority are concerned with the health effects of the mercury in these fillings and galvanism while others have new decay around or under the amalgam fillings and some simply don’t like the look of the silver
There is also the fact that silver fillings tend to expand and contract differently than your tooth structure with changes in temperature, thus they tend to crack or split the surrounding tooth.
At Excellence in Dentistry in Brisbane’s CBD, we will inspect and remove mercury fillings safely to ensure your overall health and wellbeing is in the best possible shape. We will provide the best solution for you, using all of the necessary precautions to remove your old fillings, while replacing them with BPA free fillings that will ultimately benefit your oral health.

BPA Free Composite Fillings in Brisbane
Perhaps, the most common misunderstanding about composite fillings is that they are all the same. Actually, there is a wide variety of component chemicals that can be used to make composites, including BPA, which is of course a known endocrine disruptor that may contribute to physical and neurological problems during early developmental stages in a person’s life. Research has also shown it to interfere with proper thyroid function and possibly be carcinogenic. While ALL amalgam fillings contain mercury, NOT all composites contain BPA. At Excellence in Dentistry, we only use BPA-free composite material.
