Say goodbye to mercury-silver fillings and metal crowns
If you're unhappy with the look of your old mercury-silver fillings (often called "amalgam" or "silver" fillings) and metal crowns you're not alone. Fortunately, given the advancements in materials and techniques today, there is no longer any reason to use unattractive metal with your teeth.
There are more reasons than aesthetics alone to consider replacing your old mercury-silver fillings or metal crowns. There are health concerns, too. Although the ADA has deemed the use of mercury in metal restorations safe, the debate in professional circles regarding its use still continues-despite its consideration as a toxic and hazardous material outside of the mouth.
Not only are there serious questions about how mercury-silver fillings affect your overall health, but over time alloyed materials cause serious damage to the structure of your teeth, corroding in the mouth, turning dark, and leading to additional issues, such as:
- Fractured teeth resulting from the expansion and contraction of the metal
- Gum surgery or root canals resulting from decay beneath the metal
- Unattractive dark lines at the gum line resulting from the use of metal in crowns and bridges
- Low-grade metal allergies from the use of alloyed metals in restorations
"Thank you for replacing my fractured crown last Thursday. I was apprehensive about moving to a new area last August and finding a great dentist. Our 'discovery' of you and your staff, Dr. Simos, was the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!"
