We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use advanced, new fillings made of BPA free tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you! We offer this type of restoration for a number of reasons:
- We’re able to restore your teeth INVISIBLY with this material. Plus, you will no longer experience the black staining of teeth, which was so common from silver-mercury fillings.
- The latest bonded, tooth-colored materials are just as durable as silver-mercury fillings, and can be bonded very strongly to your natural tooth structure. This enables us to place a restoration which will function for many years and help you avoid tooth fracture, a very common side effect with silver-mercury fillings.
- Mercury is the second most toxic element known to man. Although there’s no consensus in the scientific community that silver-mercury fillings pose a significant health risk, why risk it if you don’t have to? a bonded tooth-colored restoration not only strengthens your tooth and beautifies your smile — perhaps more importantly, it contains NO MERCURY!
