Dr Dental – Replacing Old Mercury Fillings: What You Need to Know Before Scheduling an Appointment with Your Dentist.

02/09/24 5:11 PM

If you want your mercury filling replaced, the first step is to schedule an appointment with a dentist. During the appointment, the dentist will examine your filling and determine if it needs to be replaced. They will also discuss the potential risks and benefits of replacing the filling.

If you and your dentist decide that replacing the mercury filling is the best option, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth and remove the old filling. They will then clean the area and prepare it for the new filling.

Porcelain fillings are a popular option for replacement fillings as they are strong and can be custom-made to match the color of your teeth. Once the new filling is in place, the dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that it fits correctly and that your bite is comfortable.

It is important to note that while replacing a mercury filling can be a good option for some people, it is not always necessary. Talk to your dentist about your situation to determine if replacing your mercury filling is the best option.

The coverage of dental insurance for replacing a mercury filling depends on the insurance company’s policy. Some insurance companies may cover the cost of replacing a mercury filling if necessary for dental health reasons, while others may not. It is best to check with your dental insurance provider to see if they cover the cost of replacing mercury fillings.
