As dental technology has evolved, dentists have found more effective ways to treat the most common to the most complex dental problems. When it comes to fillings, many dentists and patients are opting for composite resin fillings over the traditional amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings contain trace amounts of mercury and many people are uncomfortable with any amount of mercury or other metals in their smiles. If you have amalgam fillings and would like to replace them with composites, our dentist, Dr. Kathy Daroee, can remove your old fillings
As part of that process, Dr. Daroee uses the Air Vac system in Woodland Hills California, during your visit to protect you from the mercury vapors that can be released during the amalgam removal process. This is a specially designed filtration system which will catch and remove potentially harmful vapors from the area around you and the dental team. Along with the vapors, this system also catches the dust and particulates that can create health hazards. The Air Vac system is just one way that our team protects your smile and your health and we invite you to call our Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry at 818-347-1550 to learn more today.
