A Safe Way to Remove Older Fillings

Dr. Lorène Catala Boisvert is one of the few Biomimetic Dentistry offices in Santa Monica, California who follows the highest standards for amalgam removal set forth accredited by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) for the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).


The SMART protocol provides a safer and more environmentally conscious approach to amalgam removal, promoting patient well-being and environmental stewardship.


It offers several benefits for the removal of amalgam (silver) fillings:

  • Minimized Exposure to Mercury Vapor: The SMART technique employs specific safety measures to reduce the release of mercury vapor during the removal process. This helps minimize the risk of mercury inhalation for both patients and dental professionals.

  • Protects the Environment: By implementing proper containment and filtration systems, the SMART protocol prevents mercury from being released into the environment during the removal process. This helps reduce environmental contamination and supports ecological sustainability.

  • Preserves Oral Health: The SMART technique prioritizes the preservation of surrounding oral structures during amalgam removal. This minimizes the risk of damage to healthy tooth structure and promotes overall oral health.

  • Enhanced Patient Safety: Patients undergoing amalgam removal with the SMART protocol can feel reassured knowing that their safety is a top priority. With comprehensive safety measures in place, the risk of mercury exposure and potential adverse health effects is significantly reduced.

  • Compliance with Safety Standards: SMART Certified dental practices adhere to strict safety standards and guidelines established by organizations such as the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). This ensures that amalgam removal is performed in a safe and responsible manner.
