Healthy, more natural-looking fillings.
If you have had a filling done in the past, you may have had your cavities filled with black mercury. These fillings are not only unsightly, they’re also unhealthy.
It’s become a known fact that mercury is a highly toxic substance, ill advised for human consumption. Some researchers claim that each time you bite down with mercury-based fillings, you are releasing a small amount of mercury into your mouth, and then swallowing it into your system. This mercury then builds up in the body over many years, which could eventually lead to mercury poisoning.
Dr. Boyett provides modern tooth-colored composite restorations as a healthy replacement for old traditional mercury fillings. Composite restorations are aesthetically pleasing, non-toxic, and give the finished tooth almost twice the strength it would have with a mercury filling.
