At Columbia Dental Excellence, we strive to provide dental care that benefits not only your oral health, but your overall health as well. As part of our effort to achieve this goal, we provide mercury-free dentistry. Mercury is a metal that is found in amalgam (silver) fillings and may be hazardous to your health. Dr. Avi Mizrachi uses tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings instead of dental amalgam to help ensure that your smile stays healthy and beautiful. White dental fillings are made of a material called composite resin. Resin is completely free from mercury and can be matched to your natural tooth color to blend in with the appearance of your smile. In addition, the resin forms a strong bond with the tooth to strengthen it and provide a stable, lasting restoration.
To place a white dental filling in Columbia, Maryland, we first remove the decayed portion of the tooth. Our dentist will thoroughly clean the tooth and fill it with composite resin, which is applied in layers. The filling is hardened with a special light and then polished for an aesthetic finish. In just one visit to our office, we can help restore the health of your smile! To learn more, we welcome you to call 410-381-0505 or visit us today.
