A Mercury-Free Smile

Your smile is important to our Smiles Dental team, in Salem, Oregon. Do you still have old silver fillings in your mouth? If so, you may be pleased to know that our dentists, Dr. Cheryl Cooper, Dr. Theron Nebeker, and Dr. Ken Waddell, offer safe amalgam removal for your healthy smile. Our dedicated dental team are trained to safely remove old silver amalgam fillings and replace them with the more natural-looking composite dental fillings. We feel strongly about this because amalgam fillings are made of a combination of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, copper, and additional trace metals, and as mercury is released in small amounts from these fillings into your body, it can potentially harm your health over time.

Besides being mercury-free, our composite fillings (or white dental fillings) do not require cutting away healthy tooth structure to place the filling, because they bond to your natural tooth. Composite fillings also blend in with your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible.

At Smiles Dental in Salem, Oregon, our dentists, Dr. Cheryl Cooper, Dr. Theron Nebeker, and Dr. Ken Waddell, are pleased to replace your old amalgam fillings to brighten your smile. So, if you would like more information about amalgam removal and the benefits of mercury-free dentistry, or to schedule an appointment, you can reach our team at 503.877.1844 today!
