Amazing Smiles Dentistry believes in practicing metal and mercury-free dentistry. We only use bio-compatible materials, such as porcelain and composite resin, for our dental procedures. Not only are those materials more aesthetically pleasing, they are also better for your overall health.
Amalgam fillings are about 50% mercury. While it has not been proven that amalgam fillings cause direct harm to those who have them, there are many studies that show a link between mercury fillings and a number of health issues. Metal fillings are also larger than non-metal fillings, and require more of the natural tooth to be removed. We use resin and porcelain as a healthy, mercury-free alternative because we want the best for our patients and care about their overall well-being.
