Tooth-colored fillings have become extremely popular in the past few decades. 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 smile to be permanently marked by dental restorations! Tooth-colored fillings, on the other hand, are pretty much invisible!
Also, metal fillings contain a small amount of mercury, which is a well-known 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.
Since West Dentistry believes in providing restorative dentistry with a cosmetic 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, but they’re somewhat stronger than composite resin fillings, though they do take a little longer to place.
