Fillings are done to seal off any cavities in your mouth after the dentist cleans out the decay and bacteria. This prevents any further damage and ensures that the decay doesn’t progress deeper into your tooth.
At Platinum Smile our dentists choose not to use mercury fillings due to their negative effect on your health and the environment. You have a choice of resin, porcelain or gold to fill your tooth. Your dentist can discuss the best option in the clinic at the time.
Results You Can Trust
How much is a filling?
This is a tough one to answer without actually looking at the tooth. But fillings at our clinic start from $120, depending on the size, complexity and material used.
Dr. Eugene is always happy to discuss the fees at your appointment before he begins working on your tooth.
I have old silver mercury fillings. Do I need to have them all removed and replaced?
Although Dr. Eugene doesn’t place mercury fillings anymore, he doesn’t advocate that they should all be removed either. Unless the tooth with the filling has an existing problem such as decay, leakage or is broken.
So, replacing all your silver mercury fillings is a personal choice that you need to make.
And if you would like that done, Dr. Eugene is happy to discuss what non-metallic materials would be good to restore your teeth with.
