Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Restorative Dentistry

How can we help you?


Restorative Dentistry

This question seems to come up every so often in the media. We only place materials we believe are safe, whether it's amalgam (silver) or composite (plastic). Each material offers benefits, and has reasons for being used in your mouth. Our doctors, as well as the rest of our staff, attend many hours of continuing education every year to stay up on the newest news in dentistry. Please feel free to discuss amalgam with one of our doctors during your next visit. In the meantime, you can read what the Mayo Clinic has to say on the subject of amalgam safety in the mouth:

Every dental insurance plan is different. However most work in a similar way; they cover a certain percentage of many procedures, with a yearly maximum. The balance of what your insurance does not cover is your responsibility. Please let us know how we can help you maximize your insurance benefits for the plan you and your employer have chosen, we would love to work together and create a financial plan that works for you!
