Non-Metal Restorations – Mercury Free Fillings

 

Dark metal/mercury fillings can be unsightly; they let the world know about your cavities every time you smile. Dr. Udouj uses a tooth-colored filling material that blends in seamlessly with your teeth. Not only do metal free fillings look better, but because they are bonded to your natural tooth structure, they help restore the tooth back to 80% of its original strength. Metal/mercury fillings do not strengthen the tooth and constantly corrode. The metal expands and contracts with hot and cold temperature changes and can cause teeth to crack resulting in the need for more treatment.
