We restore all cavities with metal-free white fillings. Not only do they look completely natural and virtually disappear in your smile, they are safer and stronger than metal tooth fillings.
Metal is not only unattractive, it is unhealthy. What many people think of as silver fillings are actually made up of a large percentage of mercury, and who hasn’t heard about the dangers of mercury to the human body?
Metal fillings can also compromise the strength of your teeth, causing them to chip or crack as they fluctuate with temperature changes in your mouth. Because of this, metal fillings allow bacteria to form underneath, causing decay in the very teeth they were meant to protect.
Dr. Randy Mitchmore only uses natural-looking composite fillings for more extensive repairs, inlays, onlays, and crowns. We never place metal in our patients’ mouths!
