Silver Mercury Filling Removal
A diagram of Silver Mercury Fillings

We stopped placing silver mercury fillings because they break teeth. The mercury fillings swell with hot foods, shrink with cold foods, and damage teeth with thermocycling fracture lines.

We have the clinical experience to know what works and what doesn’t work for silver mercury filling replacement solutions because we have been replacing these fillings with biocompatible alterations since the 1990s.

Teeth can be refilled with tooth-coloured composite fillings or strengthened with restorations of porcelain and gold; these strengthened teeth can last a lifetime without rework because these materials are decay proof and stronger than the original enamel.

We can help determine what solution is ideal for replacing each silver mercury filling for you.
