At Black Bear Dental, part of our holistic alternative approach to dentistry includes offering mercury-free fillings. With this option, you can have a metal-free restoration that corrects your smile while preserving your overall health.
What are Mercury-Free Fillings?
Traditional amalgam (silver) fillings for treating cavities contain mercury. This not only may cause an allergic reaction against sensitive gum tissue but, as fillings wear over time, they can leak harmful toxins into your body and even your bloodstream.
Mercury-free fillings made of a biocompatible resin ensure that your teeth are protected from cavities and further tooth decay, without the risk of toxic materials affecting your immune system.
Another drawback of amalgam fillings is that the metallic material is highly noticeable. Composite-resin fillings are typically the alternative to amalgam. They are tooth-colored, blending in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and have the added benefit of being easily bonded to your teeth.
