Amalgam Free Dentistry


M Dental/Dental Palmerston NorthWhile there is quite a bit of controversy about amalgam fillings and while many authorities claim it is safe, we do not employ the use of amalgam in our practice. Here at M Dental, we offer tooth-coloured (composite) restorations instead. A range of shades are available, and we will work with you to find the perfect match.

If you have old amalgams that need replacing, you can feel rest-assured that here at M Dental we will be able to remove them safely. We are equipped with high-powered suction to effectively withdraw the mercury released during the removal of amalgam Free dentistry. We also have an eco-friendly system in place for safe amalgam separation and disposal, to minimise the effect on the environment.

For teeth that require larger fillings, we can make beautiful tooth coloured restorations with CEREC Ceramics.
