Mercury-Free Fillings for Jacksonville, Florida

We can replace your old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings at West Dentistry.

Nothing lasts forever – not even dental fillings. If you’ve had a filling for longer than 10 years, we should talk. It’s likely that your filling needs to be replaced. We can replace your old fillings with mercury-free tooth-colored composite fillings, taking those unattractive metal fillings and turning them into a natural-looking smile.

Tooth-colored fillings have become extremely popular. Why? For one thing, they don’t leave the appearance of dark spots on your teeth. Metal fillings can be seen whenever you open your mouth, and no one wants their natural smile to be permanently marked by dental restorations. Mercury-free fillings are tooth-colored, making them pretty much invisible! Also, metal fillings contain a small amount of mercury, which is a highly toxic material. You might prefer not to have mercury in your mouth. While research hasn’t proven the mercury in fillings to be harmful, why risk it? With composite resin mercury-free fillings, there’s no exposure to toxic substances of any sort.

Because West Dentistry believes in providing restorative dentistry with a cosmetic dentistry touch, we offer mercury-free fillings to all of our patients. We can also provide you with porcelain fillings if you desire. These are also mercury-free fillings, but they’re somewhat stronger than composite resin fillings. Porcelain fillings do take two appointments to create and place.

If you’re concerned about your overall health and the beauty of your dental restorations, contact West Dentistry to learn more about mercury-free fillings. We help keep the smiles of Jacksonville, Riverside, Avondale, and Ortega healthy and looking their best with mercury-free fillings and a number of other natural-looking dental restorations, including porcelain fillings and crowns.
