Amalgam Fillings Removal Treatment
What Are Amalgam Fillings?
Amalgam Fillings used to be the traditional method of filling cavities in your teeth. Not only were they not aesthetically pleasing (silver/metal) but they also contained the chemical element Mercury (which can potentially pose a long term dental health risk).
We are able to safely remove and dispose of the amalgam fillings and replace them with natural tooth coloured composite fillings.
Absolutely delighted with my treatment & results. I am so pleased that I did my research and chose to have my treatment with Girsh at Ascent in Dorridge. My case was not straightforward and the solution he designed was thoughtful and practical. I am genuinely thrilled with the results and would recommend to anyone.
Should I Have My
There are advantages and disadvantages with this traditional method of filling:
- Cheaper than other alternatives
- Theres a chances of them expanding with age and cracking your teeth
- Protective seal can fade away, which may cause them to start to decay
- Can cause tooth discolouration (gray marks)
- Fillings don’t match your tooth colour
- Contains mercury
- Healthy parts of your tooth may require to be removed to create a large enough space for an amalgam filling
- Some patients may be alergic to the amalgam material
As someone with an extreme fear of everything dental, I can’t recommend Ascent enough. All of the staff are the most knowledgeable, loveliest, most patient people. The service is amazing and the fees are really reasonable. After 20 years of dentist hopping and emergency treatment, I finally feel I am on the road to overcoming my fears. Actually excited for the next part of my dental plan!
Before & After
This patient had a large silver metal filling which created a dark shadow on the outside of the tooth. This was replaced with a white filling to improve the strength and aesthetics of this tooth.
This patient came to us with a failing silver filling. Alongside this they were also unhappy with the appearence of the filling. It was replaced with a white filling material to restore the tooth back to health and improve the cosmetic look of the tooth.
When nervous patient Sue broke a filling, she was understandably a little nervous about having it repaired. Mandeep to the rescue!
No More Nerves
Let’s face it—no one loves having fillings. So treatment with Mandeep was a breath of fresh air for Rebecca.

Very professional dental service, I’ve needed a lot of treatment over the past 6 or 7 months but have to say all the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming, jas is a top dentist always explaining my options and always extremely professional in his work. Highly recommended
Dr Gursh and the team are first class. Made to feel very comfortable during my treatment. Cannot recommend then highly enough.
Started going to ascent dental care last March 2021 with the fear of having any dental work, I have always been so self conscious of my teeth from young but just lost confidence in any dentist that saw me.
Safe to say I met Jas who has filled me with confidence and put me at ease, knowing what I wanted to achieve set me up with the perfect plan, I quit smoking to achieve healthier teeth with the advice from jas and I am now towards the end of the treatment, and am so pleased with the end results!! the staff are so welcoming and the professionalism and work within is by far worth any price on the treatment you receive!
Thanks team! Amazing work!!
I had my teeth done not while ago, Yasmin Shakarchy is my dr dentist! She’s is phenomenal! She knows exactly what she’s doing and has fixed my smile. I had Invisalign done. If you’re thinking of getting your teeth done, go with Dr Yasmin!!! She’s based in Birmingham & Solihull Trust me you won’t regret it 👍😊 I am one happy customer xx …
It is a fantastic dental Surgery an I would highly recommend any of my family a friends to go there.
The reception staff are all very helpful, polite, friendly and professional. The staffs and my Dr they both created a friendly welcoming an happy environment for me to walk into an it made sure that I was confident in having my treatment.
I first had dental treatment (implant & veneer) with Faresh in May 2013. It was a years worth of treatment and the end result was so natural looking. As my bottom teeth weren’t the straightest, I decided to have a brace fitted with Gursh. After just over 17 weeks, I had my brace removed yesterday (25/8/14) and for me, it was a Hollywood reveal. My TEETH ARE AMAZING!!!
Fantastic dentist , managed to fit me in same day and extract wisdom tooth that previous dentist had made a real mess of . So happy and pain free at last .
I have just finished my treatment with Ascent Dental after 6 months of having Lingual braces to adjust crowding in my upper teeth. I have been very impressed with the service given to me, and would thoroughly recommend the practice to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr Gursh Bajwa made the treatment comfortable, yet effective, and I am very happy with the results. I would like to thank all the staff at Ascent Dental for the high level of care and service they have given me.
Put off visiting a dentist for some years and need a host of work undertaking. Laura and her assistant Georgie were great. Very professional and compassionate about relieving my anxiety about visiting a dentist. A friendly vibe throughout all the staff creates a relaxed atmosphere I’d reccomend to anyone.
I have been using Ascent Dental for the 3 years, during that time I have had a range of treatments including fillings, an extraction under sedation, Damon braces, teeth whitening and contouring. I was a very nervous patient, but the team have been supportive and understanding and for the first time in my life I don’t dread visiting the dentist! I finally have the smile I always wanted, and I am sooo pleased with the results!! I would recommend them to everyone.
For many years I felt self conscious about my teeth which inhibits the ability to smile, so I eventually decided to get something done and approached Ascent Dental Care in Dorridge. From the initial visit they were professional and efficient. The treatment from Yasmine and the team at Ascent was excellent, perhaps a little uncomfortable at times but not painful. The results are fantastic and now I just have to get into the habit of smiling and showing my wonderful new teeth.
Have received excellent care at this dentist. Have a really bad fear of dentists and I have always been shown so much patience and kindness. Really recommend them if you get anxious about dental visits!
