If you have dental work that is aged and worn or otherwise in need of replacement, you should address that immediately. Ardmore general dentist Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario understands that faulty dental work presents serious dangers to the long-term dental health of his patients.
There are two main reasons most Ardmore-patients come to our general dentist for dental work replacement. The first is that the dental work doesn’t achieve its goal or actually causes problems for the patient.
This is sometimes the result of shoddy work by the original dentist or defective materials, but often it’s just a matter of dental work wearing down as a result of age.
The other reason patients look to replace dental work is that they’re distrustful of traditional fillings that use mercury. At The Office of Dr. Bellisario, we offer white fillings that contain no mercury. We’re happy to replace your old fillings if you’re concerned about mercury.
While the science concerning any potential danger related to dental work containing mercury remains unsettled, white fillings represent a safe, inconspicuous alternative.
If you live in the Ardmore, Pennsylvania area and want to speak to our general dentist about replacing your old dental work, please contact The Office of Dr. Bellisario today.
