Dentistry has come a long way in the past few years. The old amalgams used to be called silver fillings, but, that says more about the color than the content…which is 50% mercury, a known neurotoxin. We now use tooth colored composite resins, porcelains and bioceramics. All biocompatible and safe for you. We also make dental crowns from biocompatible materials. No more base metals like nickel, beryllium and chromium. All of our dental crowns are made of biocompatible materials that are in harmony with your body. We can actually test the material to make sure, too.
Are Tooth Colored Fillings Safer Than Amalgams?
Call Donna at 757-349-8877 and let’s talk about your mercury fillings.
Biocompatible (BPA free) fillings and bioceramic crowns are the standard at Evans Dental Care. We have been using biocompatible materials for 2 decades. You can rest assured they are safe for you.
No More Metal In Your Mouth
Tooth colored fillings are not always biocompatible. Just because they are white, doesn’t mean they are biocompatible for you. Dr. Evans restores teeth with biocompatible (BPA free) composite resins that are bonded to your teeth for strength and durability.
Composite Tooth Fillings
When a tooth has a filling that is 50% of more of the tooth surface, it becomes weaker and may need a crown for protection so you can chew on it with confidence. Some crowns are made with base metals (chromium, nickel) and some porcelains contain aluminum silicates. At Evans Dental Care we use only biocompatible materials in our crowns. They look and feel like real teeth.
