At Smiles of Chattanooga, we want your smile to look as natural as possible. When it comes to dental restorations, that means avoiding metal. For example, we use tooth-colored composite fillings that blend in seamlessly with your smile.
In addition to their more natural appearance, we won’t need to remove as much healthy tooth structure to place composite fillings. Not to mention, you won’t have to worry about any of the health concerns associated with the mercury in amalgam (metal) fillings. Research has failed to show a definitive link between mercury and health problems, but why take a chance? In fact, Drs. Gallien and Eudaly can safely remove amalgam fillings if you’d prefer to not have metal restorations.
For more information, watch this video from the American Dental Association. Then call Smiles of Chattanooga at 423-380-0681 if you’re interested in composite fillings and/or removal of metal fillings.
