Mercury Free Fillings are used to repair defects caused to teeth due to decay, fractures, cracks, and other abnormalities. The defect or decay is removed from the tooth and then replaced with a filling.
In this day and age of cosmetic dentistry much of the treatment is provided with aesthetically pleasing, white, mercury-free composite and ceramic fillings. Unlike the older traditional silver amalgam fillings, the newer ceramic fillings can be matched to blend with natural tooth structure restoring a beautiful smile. Silver and gold fillings are still available where appropriate and upon request.
