Mercury-Free Fillings, also known as Composite Fillings (follow this link for more about composite fillings), are made from a special resin with filler particles embedded in it to provide strength and resistance to wear.
There are many advantages to using Mercury-Free Fillings:
- Restore the natural appearance of the tooth
- Mercury-Free Fillings are less sensitive to hot and cold
- Mercury in fillings is viewed by some as being toxic
- Size of the hole made for filling can be dramatically smaller with Mercury-Free Fillings
