These days people are choosing to replace their silver mercury fillings with metal-free composite fillings or porcelain inlays and onlays

Metal-Free FillingsSilver mercury fillings not only look unsightly but can actually be harmful to your teeth. They expand and contract in response to heat and cold weakening the tooth they we’re meant to protect. This can also allow decay to begin under the filling which often goes unnoticed until too late.

These days with new materials and technologies available, more people are choosing to replace their silver mercury fillings with metal-free composite fillings or porcelain inlays and onlays.

The advantages of Metal-Free fillings are as follows:

Less invasive placement,
More stable than mercury amalgam,
They provide a tighter seal,
Do not weaken teeth since they don’t expand with heat the way metal does,
Restore teeth to their original strength and to a beautiful appearance.
