Non-Metal Fillings

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.
