Mercury Free Dentistry and Your Health
At Staten Island Smiles, we are passionate about beautiful smiles that are healthy too. We use mercury-free dentistry at our clinic to ensure that your teeth and general health are both protected.
You may have heard about the negatives associated with mercury and amalgam fillings, and wondered if there are really any health risks. Through this blog, Dr. Joseph Mormino will discuss the positives of mercury-free dentistry and composite fillings, and help you understand why this type of dentistry is safer for you.
What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings are fillings that are created from porcelain -based materials. These fillings are also known as composite fillings and are used to replaced decayed parts of the teeth. They help to strengthen the teeth to restore a tooth back to its original functionality.
Tooth colored fillings do not contain mercury or other types of metals, and are considered to be a safer alternative to these fillings. Dr. Joseph Mormino prefers these fillings because they are able to deliver beautiful cosmetic results, while also not carrying any risks of mercury poisoning. When you smile or open your mouth, there is no appearance of silver as you would find with traditional amalgams. Instead, all you see is your radiant smileno dotting of silver to be found.
During a consultation with Dr. Joseph Mormino and his Staten Island Smile team, your mercury-free dentistry options will be discussed with you so that you can gain more insight into the benefits of composite fillings. Contact our Staten Island office today to learn more about this holistic form of dentistry.
