Changing Silver Mercury Fillings to White Fillings
Many people these days are conscious of their oral health and the effect it has in their general wellbeing. Traditionally, metal amalgam (mercury) fillings was the only material of choice when people suffer from dental decay and cavities. Concerns have been raised about the use of dental amalgam because it contains mercury. There is an ongoing controversy as to whether having mercury fillings in our mouth poses any risk.
With the advancement in dental technology, there are many other alternatives to amalgam such as direct composite (tooth coloured) fillings, and indirect porcelain fillings (Inlays/ Onlays) to restore decayed and broken down teeth.
At Dental Boutique, we care for your wellbeing, and rather be safe than sorry. We strive to provide the finest and safest options for our patients and choose to be a mercury-free dental practice. We believe in your freedom in material of choice, and will explain to you the advantages and disadvantages of each material for you.
