No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!
For years, the silver – mercury amalgam was the standard filling material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it. While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer modern, state of the art restorations that are natural – looking and contain no metals. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth so there is much less chance of decay in the future.
