Safe Amalgam Removal in Grand Junction, CO
An amalgam of metal and mercury used to be the only material used for filling a cavity. Amalgam fillings are very durable and effective, but there is a concern about mercury leaking out of the filling and being absorbed by the body.
A better alternative is tooth-colored fillings that are made of composite resin, zirconium or porcelain. Tooth-colored materials blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, and the dentist can match the color for the best look. Composite resin also eliminates the potential hazards associated with mercury in amalgam fillings.
If you want to replace old amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings, visit Grand Dental today. Colorado dentist Dr. Benefield is the only practitioner in the area who provides safe amalgam removal. You are protected from exposure to toxic elements like mercury while the old filling is removed. The replacement filling is also biocompatible for better overall health.
