At Diamond Smiles, we care about your smile – and your health! Therefore, Dr. Luna uses a more holistic approach to fillings. Our office uses a composite, or tooth-colored, fillings. We DO NOT use amalgam, also known as silver or mercury fillings. Amalgam contains 40-50% mercury, with the remainder being composed of copper, tin, silver, and sometimes other metals. It is a known fact that mercury is continuously leaking out of the filling and entering the blood stream. For this reason, we have chosen not to use this product and use composite instead. Additionally, most metal fillings have cavities under them! Fortunately, there is a much better solution – composite fillings.
Replace Your Amalgams
If you have had metal fillings and want them replaced, we are able to change them to a composite material. Contact Diamond Smiles today to learn more about why we use composite fillings and their benefit over the metal alternative.
