Silver Amalgam Fillings Contain Hazardous Mercury

Do you know that those “silver” fillings you may have in your mouth are not made of silver but are actually 50% Mercury? Did you know that there are strong and aesthetic alternatives available?  This well kept secret is something that cosmetic dentists, like Dr. Lisa Marie Samaha, are making Americans more aware of.  Scientific research tells us that mercury is a poisonous substance that can have harmful effects on your brain, liver and central nervous system. Some people’s bodies react to the presence of mercury in dental fillings. Whether or not mercury in dental amalgam fillings is dangerous to you, effective alternatives are available.

At Port Warwick Dental Arts, we use porcelain and composite resin fillings, which are not only more aesthetically pleasing since they match the tooth color, they are also much safer for our patients.
