Our dentist and team are committed to ensuring your dental health is never compromised, especially when it comes to the materials used in your dental treatments. Understanding the concerns many have about traditional amalgam fillings, we proudly offer mercury-free dental fillings. These advanced restorative materials not only match the natural appearance of your teeth but also support your overall well-being by eliminating exposure to mercury.

Choose Health With Mercury-Free Fillings

Mercury-free fillings, crafted from composite resin or porcelain, offer a safe and aesthetically pleasing alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Unlike their mercury-containing counterparts, these fillings bond directly to the tooth structure, which helps to restore the tooth’s original strength and integrity. Opting for mercury-free fillings means choosing a solution that is beneficial for both your dental health and the environment.

The Mercury-Free Filling Experience

Receiving a mercury-free filling at our office is a straightforward, patient-focused process:

  1. Consultation: Our dentist and team evaluate your dental needs and discusse the advantages of mercury-free fillings, ensuring you are fully informed about your treatment options.
  2. Preparation: The tooth is prepared for the filling, which involves removing decay and shaping the tooth to ensure a perfect fit for the new filling.
  3. Placement: The mercury-free filling material is then carefully applied to the tooth. It is molded and shaped to match your bite and the natural contours of your tooth.
  4. Curing: A special light is used to harden the filling material, bonding it securely to your tooth.
  5. Polishing: The final step involves polishing the filling to achieve a smooth finish that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.
