What is mercury-free dentistry?
Mercury, is a toxic metal which historically was used by dentists as a filling material following removal of tooth decay. People often refer to it as a silver or metal filling which can create an unpleasant metal taste. Some researchers believe that mercury fillings poses risks to the overall health of dental patients although this has largely been refuted within the evidence based literature.
Mercury-free dentistry implies that no silver fillings (no amalgam) will be used with treating patients at Smile Hub Dental Clinic. We want only the best cosmetic results in Smile Hub Dental Clinic for our patients where there is absolutely no risk to the patient’s health.
