No More Mercury or Metal!
You may be familiar with the silver-mercury amalgam that is the
filling material frequently used for dental restorations.
Although it works reasonably well for a filling, it does not
form a tight bond with teeth, which could result in eventual
decay. Patients do not like how noticeable these fillings are,
as they contrast highly with the shade of their teeth. Today, we
use only composite fillings that match the shade of the tooth,
contain no metal, and bond very tightly with the tooth
structure. It adds to the strength of the tooth and lessens the
chance of decay.
