Mercury Filling Removal in Houston, TX

Mercury (silver) fillings have been used in dental work for generations. However, mercury fillings have long been a topic of controversy in the dental world. In recent decades, researchers have raised questions about the potential health effects of long-term mercury exposure from these types of fillings. As a result, more and more people are seeking alternatives and considering having their mercury fillings replaced.

If you’ve been feeling that it’s time for a change but feeling unsure of where to start, then you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Tasneem Mahmood of Gloss Dentistry at Greenway offers mercury filling removal in Houston, TX, and can provide an informative overview of what’s involved in the mercury filling removal process, the options available to replace them, and answers to some frequently asked questions to help you make the best decision for your oral health and peace of mind at your next dental appointment at our Upper Kirby dental office.


The Controversy Surrounding Mercury Fillings

As with any medical treatment, it is essential for patients to be well-informed and make the decision that is best for them. Mercury fillings have long been a subject of controversy in modern medicine, and the use of mercury in dental amalgams has been a topic of debate due to concerns about the potential health risks it poses. While amalgam fillings have been the go-to material for fillings for over a century, many people have raised concerns over the potential health risks of having a filling with up to 50% mercury in one’s mouth.

While the American Dental Association®  (ADA) suggests that the amount of mercury in fillings is safe, durable, and effective, many individuals and dentists have opted for alternative filling materials to err on the side of caution. Despite the ongoing debate, the decision to use mercury fillings ultimately comes down to personal choice and consideration of the risks and benefits.

At Gloss Dentistry, we understand the importance of safe and effective mercury-filling removal. That’s why our Houston dentist uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure that the process is as gentle and efficient as possible.

Replacing with Natural-Looking Alternatives
