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 ones, taking those unattractive metal fillings to help restore your natural-looking smile.
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.
Because 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.
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 using a number of natural-looking dental restorations, including porcelain fillings and crowns.
