The Benefits of Mercury Free/Tooth Colored Fillings
Mercury is one of the most dangerous and harmful substances on Earth. It has been scientifically proven to cause severe illness and even death, in cases of consumption. However, many people are unaware that this deadly substance is highly present in silver amalgam dental fillings, a popular type of filling. In fact, mercury makes up about 50 percent of amalgam fillings and they have been known to deteriorate over time. When the fillings deteriorate, the mercury gets consumed or absorbed into the patient’s body, thereby negatively affecting their health. Every day, patients who have amalgam fillings do things that further contribute to the degradation of these mercury-filled fillings, including doing daily activities like brushing, eating, and chewing.
Tooth colored fillings are made out of a composite resin that is completely free of mercury and other harmful substances. In addition, they are the same color as your teeth and are virtually entirely unnoticeable to other people. These types of fillings have proven to be just as effective as amalgam fillings, if not more so. They are strong, natural-looking, and long-lasting. For all your cavities, decayed teeth, and more, use the mercury free/tooth colored fillings at Dr. Tenaglia’s office. With us, we can help you get the safe and effective treatment you and your smile deserve.
Here are several well-known facts about the effects of mercury:
- Mercury has shown to be more toxic than Arsenic, Cadmium, and even Lead
- Mercury dissipates out of amalgam fillings over time, being consumed into the patient’s body
- Mercury is scientifically proven to kill cells and has led to the deaths of countless individuals throughout history
- Mercury has been linked to several illnesses and conditions, including Alzheimer’s Disease and several auto immune diseases
