Mercury Safe FAQ
Where can I get more information about Mercury Amalgam fillings?
What is a Mercury Safe Dentist?
What is the difference between a Mercury Free and a Mercury Safe Dentist?
My Silver Mercury fillings are over 20 years old. When I replace them what is the material used instead of Silver Mercury?
Composite fillings require more skill, experience and time than mercury fillings, plus a curing light is needed to harden these fillings. Every patient is different and your tooth may require more extensive repair after the old filling and any new decay, as well as fractures or cracks are removed. Other options are Crowns or onlays. We will discuss all options prior to your treatment.
What do I do if an old crown that needs to be replaced has a Silver/Mercury (amalgam) filling under it that the xray cannot verify?
What Are my Options for Crown Materials if I am Trying to Avoid Metals?
We are always happy to go over all available options for your treatment if you have any questions. To schedule an appointment, please call 828.699.8781 or visit https://www.andersdds.com/contact
What Will you do if I am Highly Sensitive to Many Materials and Products?
I just wanted to say how much my wife and I enjoyed Caroline’s personality. She was such a joy to work with. She made our 3.5 hr drive well worth it. Don’t get me wrong, everyone I encountered in the practice was kind and had good energy, but she really radiated goodness. I am grateful to have met her in my journey. My only detractor is the fact that covid is still a thing and I couldn’t see everyone’s smiles. Thank you so much!
They are always so nice when I go in. They listen to what I have to say. They make me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. They are the only dentist I will go too!!
My 1st visit today was also somewhat urgent in that I had significant pain that was escalating. I couldn’t have been more fortunate to find your office. It was thorough, efficient, safe, clean and patient friendly. Dr. Armistead and “belle” were awesome. Hats off to Rebecca as well. Having worked in healthcare for decades in hospitals, clinics, and my own private psychotherapy practice allows me a little insight and all I can say is “perfect”. I now have a dental office here in Black Mountain. Thank you!
Fantastic experience as a new patient. They took good care of me, listened, and explained their procedures. I had a filling pop out in the middle of a pandemic and they were cautious, understanding, and pain free.
Love this practice! I’m always treated with care and courtesy; their processes are efficient and designed for comfort & reassurance. Even during this difficult time of taking extra care due to COVID, they made it easy & earned my trust and confidence in their approach. Great job, team – thank you so much!
Great visit and was treated very well. Dr. Anders and her staff made me feel welcome even though it was my first visit. I am glad I they worked me in on such a short notice. Thank you.
Dr. Anders is incredibly professional and supportive. This was the first time a dentist ever spoke with me about the relationship between my dental condition and overall health. This practice is committed to improving quality of life for patients.
I was recommended to Dr. Anders by a retired dentist who had moved to the area. I have not been disappointed. Dr. Anders and her staff are caring, friendly, professional individuals who attend to the details of dental care.
I’ve been the happiest with Dr. Anders dental work than any other DDS I’ve seen in my 64 years. She has been gentle, caring and thorough and made both temporary and permanent crowns that fit well and look good.
Love these women! Best dentist I have EVER been to! Always so friendly! Love the sign Jeremiah 29:11!
