At Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, Drs. Yacaman and Vidjak are excited to provide mercury-free dental care for their patients. Mercury is a toxic substance that can seriously impact your health if it is inhaled or ingested. Therefore, opting for mercury-free dental care provides an extra layer of safety and protection from adverse health effects. Mercury is a substance often found in past restorations, specifically silver amalgam fillings placed by previous dentists. These fillings are found to increase one’s risk of mercury toxicity. When you visit our Beverly Hills, California, area office for mercury-free dentistry, we can remove these fillings and replace them with safer materials.
Mercury-free dentistry also offers other benefits, such as restoration options that are both esthetically pleasing and long-lasting. Without the use of mercury fillings, there is no risk of discoloration or staining of surrounding teeth, which can be a problem with traditional amalgam fillings. Additionally, when composite filling materials are used instead of amalgams, they require less preparation of the tooth and provide better protection against further decay and infection. In addition to being safer and more aesthetically pleasing, mercury-free dental options are often less expensive than traditional amalgam fillings.
Studies show the negative side of silver amalgam fillings, but these can be removed safely by a mercury-free dentist and replaced using a composite resin material. This can be done during a single appointment and reduce your toxicity risk.
Overall, opting for a dentist who provides mercury-free dental care can offer many benefits to you and your family, from improved health and safety to better aesthetics and cost savings. At Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, Drs. Yacaman and Vidjak take pride in offering the highest quality care with the most advanced techniques available today.
