Mercury Free Dental Fillings
Westchester Dental Care takes pride in offering mercury-free dental fillings for the health and safety of you and your family. Our dentists in Mount Kisco NY have been offering mercury-free fillings for over 25 years. You can be sure that we are committed to your overall health as well as your dental health.
Dental fillings are often needed when some tooth structure is lost. It may have been lost due to an accident or tooth decay. In some cases, bonded white fillings are used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Bonded fillings are an effective way of restoring your tooth’s original structure.
Amalgam (which contains mercury) has been widely used in the past because the material is strong, inexpensive, and easy to work with. Its use has diminished over the years, however, because of the toxicity of mercury and because large metal fillings cause serious cracks in teeth when the metal expands and contracts.
Scientists have also found that amalgam fillings leach mercury into the mouth. This causes adverse effects to the cardiac, digestive, and nervous system.
At Westchester Dental Care, we use top quality resins and ceramics to restore your teeth. These high quality and safe materials allow us to restore your teeth’s natural form and function. The best part of these restorations is that they are tooth color, so you’ll have a beautiful restoration that blends perfectly with your tooth enamel.
