Say So Long to Silver Fillings

Harborside Dental, the practice of Stephen E. Kozelko, DDS, and Mark D Krull, DDS, is a mercury-free practice, but many people still have silver fillings from years past. These fillings contain 50 percent mercury, a known neurotoxin, and result in a weaker tooth structure. Composite tooth-colored restorations fillings are not only more attractive, but also add strength to weakened teeth thanks to new bonding technologies. The process requires only one appointment.

            There are many other advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin composite fillings are bonded to the teeth, creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can even be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The finished tooth remains intact and stronger, and the result is a beautiful smile.
