Tooth-Colored Fillings (mercury-free)

When filling a cavity, most patients prefer white or “porcelain” fillings that match the color of their tooth over the old fashioned silver fillings. Most obviously, tooth colored fillings give the patient more confidence when they smile because it is attractive and natural, but the feeling of metal (mercury) with silver fillings leaves a strange taste, feels very uncomfortable, and makes the patient extremely self conscious. At Lucky Dental, we love to see our patients smile big and smile often, so we use mercury free, tooth colored fillings.
