Did you know that amalgam and other materials that contain mercury may be harmful to your health? Amalgam is composed of a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, copper, and other trace metals. Mercury may be harmful to your overall health, and it is released in small amounts to your body through amalgam fillings. At our office, we do not use any materials or products that contain mercury. Composite fillings are one type of mercury-free restoration we offer at our practice. In addition to containing mercury, amalgam fillings also often eventually lead to tooth fractures and cracks, while composite restorations can actually help to strengthen the tooth structure. Furthermore, composite dental fillings are a more aesthetic choice for your smile; while amalgam dental fillings are silver in color, composite fillings are tooth colored and can be matched to blend in with your smile’s natural appearance.
