Amalgam Free Dentistry

Amalgam Free Dentistry

We Are An Amalgam-Free Practice.

White tooth coloured restorations are the modern alternative to amalgam restorations.

We only use the latest biocompatible tooth coloured materials and do not advocate the use of amalgam or mercury-based products. Besides not being cosmetically appealing, amalgam restorations can cause structural weakness to the tooth often resulting in cracking or fracture. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, a highly toxic material that can affect your health.

Want To Remove Your Old Unsightly Fillings?

Dr Ashton has not used amalgam filling materials with his patients for nearly 20 years. He has many years of experience in their proper removal. Dr Ashton will usually use a rubber dam when removing amalgam restorations to reduce exposure to mercury.

For more information on our white tooth coloured restorations or on how we can help remove your amalgam fillings, we recommend you give our friendly team a call on (07) 4051 7333.
