We use the most advanced tooth-colored material for fillings that renders unsightly old metal fillings obsolete. After you have a cavity filled at our practice, you may not even be able to tell which tooth had the work done! For over a hundred years, fillings were made of a material called “dental amalgam,” which was largely comprised of mercury and other metals. Some dentists believe that the mercury used in dental amalgam poses a potential hazard to doctors and patients. We play it safe and use a material that is completely mercury-free, and also looks great!
