Silver, or amalgam fillings contain about 50% mercury, a chemical that has been scientifically shown with very high toxicity levels. This has led to a movement towards mercury-free dentistry. Our office’s alternative to unsightly and controversial mercury amalgams are resin fillings.
In addition to being safer, white resin fillings are much more aesthetically pleasing. With white fillings, no one even needs to know that you have been to the dentist. By matching the white filling to your own tooth color, white resin fillings become virtually invisible and look just like natural teeth.
