Common Questions
About Mercury-Free Dentistry


Why should I choose mercury-free dentistry?

Mercury-free dentistry is a conscious choice for your overall health. Traditional dental amalgam fillings contain mercury, which poses potential health risks. Opting for mercury-free alternatives ensures dental restorations are not only safe but also biocompatible. This type of dentistry supports your long-term overall health.

Are mercury-free fillings durable?

Yes, mercury-free fillings are durable. Advances in dental technology have led to the development of strong and resilient alternatives to metal fillings. You can confidently select mercury-free fillings without compromising on quality.

Is mercury-free dentistry more expensive than traditional options?

It’s difficult to talk about cost without having you in our office and making recommendations unique to your smile. While the initial investment may be higher than metal fillings, the long-term benefits for your health make it a worthwhile choice. Choosing mercury-free fillings safeguards the future long-term health of your smile and body. Composite fillings cost slightly more than amalgam fillings but less than ceramic or gold fillings.
