Natural Looking Fillings

Mercury Free Tooth Colored Composite Fillings are resin fillings that are placed in teeth to rebuild natural shape after cavities are removed. They can also be utilized to change a tooth's color or appearance.

Mercury Free Office

Mercury Fillings are not being placed in our office. These fillings are comprised of a mixture of mercury liquid, small pieces of silver, copper, tin and zinc. Because they are metal, they can expand and contract with temperature and small forces like biting. With exposure to hot and cold and eating, the teeth are being weakened. Over a period of time, the tooth is susceptible to fracturing or breaking. Gaps between the tooth and filling occur that can allow micro-leakage and cavities. Mercury is also a very toxic element and literature is not absolute about long term effects on overall health from mercury released from teeth.
