Reasons I have been a Mercury-Free dentist for over 30 years!

  • Amalgams or so-called silver fillings are actually 50% mercury usually combined with copper, zinc, tin and a small amount of elemental silver.
  • Mercury has no place in our bodies..No RDA!
  • Like in a thermometer, these “mercury fillings” expand and contract when exposed to hot and cold resulting in daily stress to the surrounding walls of teeth. Cracks are common and often lead to sensitive teeth and outright fractures. Thus necessitates more dentistry such as root canals and crowns.
  • Amalgams require more tooth reduction to be placed which means a more likely need for numbing the mouth. Being minimally invasive is always better! Composite resins are far more conservative.
  • Amalgams need maintenance ultimately and complete removal. Composites typically can simply be resurfaced. This is far “friendlier!”
  • Amalgams are metallic and conduct temperature making tooth sensitivity more likely. Composites are non-metallic and are more comfortable.
  • Amalgams are ugly and get darker and even worse looking as they age.
