Can you remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, the people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. Then you got some cavities, and fillings – silver fillings. At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, you can replace those unsightly silver fillings with white fillings.
Those old-style amalgam fillings were a staple of traditional dentistry for decades. Mirelez Wellness Dental is a holistic practice, and as such recognize that the mercury in those amalgam fillings is a toxin. Even small amounts of it can pose a risk to your overall health. Therefore, we don’t use them.
The white fillings we use are made of plastic and ceramic. They are commonly referred to as composite fillings. They can be used to fill cavities, just like traditional silver fillings. They’re durable, and because they can be made to match the color of your teeth, are all but undetectable to the naked eye.
Some will tell you that the jury is still out on the safety of silver fillings. After all, the World Health Organization and the American Dental Association have not come out against them. As a holistic practice, we cannot overlook the fact that they contain toxic material.
At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we provide family dentistry are committed to being a mercury-free practice. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
