Natural, Tooth Colored Restorations Made Easy
Most dentists are still filling teeth with a mercury silver material called amalgam.
This material is used because it is inexpensive and easy to place, as such it is
the dental insurance companies choice for fillings. However, due to amalgam's mercury
content, it has been the center of a major controversy. The issue stems from whether
the mercury released into our bodies is harmful to our health. Some countries have
banned the use of amalgam.
Aside from this controversy, amalgam fillings, due to their expansion and contraction,
weaken the tooth, creating fractures which can result in broken teeth. They also
make the teeth sensitive to hot and cold foods due to the temperature conductivity.
Most people would agree that amalgam fillings make your teeth look ugly. Now you
can have these unattractive fillings replaced with porcelain or composite restorations.
These tooth colored restorations not only give the tooth a more natural look, but
also strengthen it by way of a chemical bonding process. My training allows me to
create this magic with your teeth.
