Do you have any amalgam fillings? Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are created from a mixture of metals. This mixture is approximately 50% mercury, and research has indicated that amalgam fillings may be unsafe for your health. At the dental practice of Laura B. Ousley, DDS, we are committed to providing dentistry that is good for both your mouth and your total body health. We are a mercury-free office and we provide amalgam removal to improve the health of your smile and your body as a whole. Dr. Laura B. Ousley, our knowledgeable dentist, practices safe amalgam removal to ensure that you are exposed to as little mercury as possible. After your old amalgam filling has been removed, we will replace it with a composite filling. Composite fillings are created from a resin material that contains no mercury or other harmful materials. In addition, composite fillings are more aesthetic than amalgam fillings – while amalgam fillings are silver in color and can darken over time, composite dental fillings are designed to match the natural color of your teeth. If you have one or more amalgam fillings, we encourage you to contact us today to learn more about dental amalgam removal in Guthrie and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We are dedicated to improving your oral health!
