Moonlight Beach Dental has the ability, equipment and the experience to safely remove mercury fillings. This is important since the levels of mercury vapor created by this procedure frequently exceed the safety thresholds of several jurisdictions and agencies. Not every dentist is trained to remove mercury safely.
In the photos below here, the mercury filling caused the tooth to crack.
The old filling was on top of the nerve. So I slowly cut the filling into pieces then cleaned the deeper portions with the laser and made a band-aid over the nerve.
Instead of the root canal/buildup and crown we conventionally have, we were able to mill a new piece of enamel out of porcelain.
