Tooth Colored Fillings at Mountain View, CA

There has been great controversy over the past few years regarding the traditional tooth fillings which most dentists have been using since the early 1800’s. The metal fillings use a substance called amalgam which is an alloy consisting of silver, mercury, tin and copper. Small amounts of zinc, indium or palladium may also be used. While the alloy fills in perfectly into the cavities, there are a few concerns that have come to light in the past decade.

According to researchers, the mercury in the amalgam is highly toxic and may continue leeching into your mouth, teeth and saliva years after the filling has been placed. While that may be of general concern, the substance also doesn’t look aesthetically pleasing which could make you self-conscious about your smile.

Advantages of Tooth-Coloured Fillings:

Opting for tooth-colored fillings will not only protect your inner gums from getting damaged due to cavities, the fillings will also stay between you and the dentist. They also do not contain mercury or any other toxins, making them as bio-friendly as possible. Additionally, tooth-colored metal fillings have the same thermal handling capacity of natural tooth enamel. This reduces the chances of your teeth cracking, due to the fillings, by a huge extent.

As an added bonus, you do not have to worry about the filling leaving its intended home as tooth-colored fillings are molecularly bonded.
