Mercury-Free Tooth-Colored Fillings
Many people are familiar with metal amalgam fillings, which are often referred to as silver fillings although they are actually composed of about 50% elemental mercury. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin that is completely free from metal or mercury. Once placed, they blend in well with the natural color of your teeth for a flawless finish that hides the fact that you have had a cavity filled.
If you are in need of a filling and are looking for a tooth-colored, natural-looking filling, please contact Elk Grove Smile Center to schedule your appointment today.
