Dental FAQ

The following are some questions that are frequently asked at Value Dental. If you would like a question answered then please contact us.

Q. I have some old silver fillings which are beginning to look bad. What can be done to improve them?

A. Silver amalgam fillings, comprising of mercury,eventually need to be replaced in five to eight years. Your dentist at Value Dental can tell you when they appear to NEED to be replaced due to leakage, breakdown or recurrent decay.


Q. I would like to have my teeth whitened but am confused with so many products available in the market. What do you recommend?

A. There are many products and techniques available. The various over the counter products give the least predictable results. To get a really great result you should probably use one of the products sold through dental offices. Value Dental recommends Opalescence Boost based whitening, that offers results in about an hour and is extremely safe and roughly 95% effective in removing stains and discoloration on teeth.


Q. There are so many different toothbrushes on the market today. How do I know which one is the right one for me?

A. This is a good question, which we hear daily. The brand of the toothbrush is not as important as the type of bristle, the size and shape of the head and how frequently you replace your brush.

Value Dental recommends using a soft bristled brush with a small head. The soft bristles are most important for the health of your gums. A small head allows you to get around each tooth more completely and is less likely to injure your gums.
