Are metal fillings safe?

There is no evidence to show that metal amalgam fillings are dangerous in any way. However, some patients prefer not to have them at all because they contain small amounts of mercury. As an alternative, we offer both tooth-coloured fillings and dental crowns without metal components.​

If you ever have questions about the effectiveness or safety of any of the dentistry we offer, please let us know. We are happy to help you find the latest information and to explain any procedure we perform.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
PATIENT SAFETY UPDATE: With the new recent restrictions lifted to level 1, we are currently treating patients and back to our normal trading hours Mon-Fri 8:30 am - 5:30 pm. Your safety is our top priority. To learn more about the extra precautionary measures we are taking to keep everyone safe, please see here.  Thank you and take care. Please call us if you have any questions.
