Unsightly Fillings Dallas
Serving the Dallas Metroplex, University Park, Plano, and Surrounding Areas
Most fillings before the 1990's are silver amalgam fillings. These fillings have many problems. For one, they take up lots of space inside the molar, which weakens the tooth. Also, over time, these fillings expand, which can crack the tooth.
Also, perhaps most importantly, silver fillings contain mercury. Mercury was thought to be safe at the time, but today we know that mercury is a very toxic substance. Exposure has been linked to a host of neurological and gastrointestinal problems.
If you have silver amalgam fillings, you should have them replaced with non-metal fillings. Today, the technology is such that white, mercury-free fillings are the preferred choice for most patients. They're non-toxic, well-fitting and white, so they match your natural teeth. In addition, like epoxy, they bond to the tooth and add to its strength. Aside from the health benefits, they are also more aesthetically pleasing.
