Research on mercury contained in fillings and other dental restorations isn’t conclusive. The FDA approves of amalgam (metal) fillings containing mercury for ages 6 and above. But we prefer to avoid it, since it’s just not worth taking a chance with your health. So we use only non-metal fillings.
Made of tooth-colored composite, they blend in easily with your smile. Since they contain no mercury, they’re also easier on the environment than metal fillings. Most important, there are fewer health concerns around the use of composite materials.
Just Smiles is committed to biofriendly dentistry. That means whenever possible we use non-toxic materials that won’t harm the environment or your long-term health. Non-metal fillings are part of that commitment.
Watch this video from the American Dental Association for more information on non-metal fillings. Then call Just Smiles if you have any questions, or if you need to make an appointment. We’re so confident in the quality of our composite fillings, we offer a limited dental warranty on them – and on some of our other dental restorations too.
