Keep Mercury in the Solar System, Not in Your Mouth


You’re sitting with friends or family looking through old pictures when you come across one of yourself. It’s a good one: your chin is up, there is a gleam in your eyes, and you’re wearing your biggest genuine smile. Upon closer inspection, you realize that you’re not so crazy about this picture afterall. Why? Your otherwise flawless smile reveals dark gray fillings in your molars. You move on to the rest of the pictures and wonder if you can go back in time and insist that your dentist use tooth-colored fillings.

Once believed to be superior to tooth-colored fillings, silver (amalgam) fillings are a thing of the past. There are many reasons why Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville believes that tooth-colored (also known as composite) fillings are FAR superior to amalgam, the two greatest being their safety and their appearance. Here are a few details about tooth-colored fillings that we think you’ll be excited about.

If you have silver fillings, there’s no need to study quantum physics so you can build a time machine; we can replace them with tooth-colored fillings right in our office. If you’re interested in getting the mercury out of your mouth, contact us today. We proudly serve patients in Bernardsville, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas.
