Because mercury can be released during filling removal, Dr. Sekhon takes special steps to ensure isolation of mercury particles and vapors during the procedure. When we remove your metal filling, we place a white filling or crown in its place, giving you a restoration that is the same color as the rest of your smile.
Many of our patients come to us with questions about mercury fillings. While you are here for your exam and treatment consultation, Dr. Sekhon will be happy to provide you with literature that discusses scientific findings related to amalgam fillings. Please call us for more information.
