Q– How do I get started with replacing my Mercury fillings?
A– Make an appointment for a free consultation during which you will learn what needs to be done, how long it will take, and how much it will cost, as well as how to do it safely and effectively.
Q– What is the cost?
A– It depends on the complexity of the job. The best way to find out is to come in for a free consultation.
Q– Does insurance cover this type of work?
Q– What do you replace the Mercury fillings with?
A– Composite is the main material used. It is basically space- age plastic. It is also tooth colored so it looks just like it is part of the tooth when it is finished so it is very cosmetic in appearance.
Q– How long do these new fillings last?
A– They last about as long as amalgam fillings. I’ve done many composite fillings that have lasted longer than 20 years.
Q– Is the procedure safe?
A– If it’s done by a properly trained dentist, yes. Interview him or her first and do your homework so you know what you’re looking for.
Q– How many appointments does it take for dental revision?
A– Usually 4 appointments or less.
