Raleigh cosmetic dentist Dr. Justin Russo takes a common sense dental wellness approach to mercury fillings and their usefulness. He strongly believes that since we live in the 21st century, there is absolutely no need to have mercury in your mouth!
Dr. Russo can provide ways to safely remove your black mercury fillings, and replace them with natural-looking aesthetic composite fillings.
What are Mercury Fillings?
Silver-mercury fillings, most commonly known as “amalgam” fillings, have been placed in people’s mouths for hundreds of years. They are the dental equivalent to the Model T Ford Truck. Amalgam actually means to “mix with mercury”. In today’s world, everyone is so concerned about what kinds of cosmetic products they use, if these products are organic, environmentally safe, and (most of all), “good for you”. Still, Dr. Russo is shocked by the number of people who have no idea what the materials in their mouth are made from. Not only does this material stay in your mouth 24 hours a day, but every time you chew, small amounts of mercury get released into your mouth.
There are much more biocompatible and safer dental materials used today than silver-mercury fillings and porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Dr. Russo: Your Mercury-Free Dentist
Did you know? People also have a certain type of dental crown in their mouth that have a metal substructure. This metal substructure is an unknown alloy, which may include gold, nickel, and beryllium. Many low-cost dentists offering low-prices outsource their dental work overseas to provide patients these low dental prices.
Dr. Russo and staff have personally removed crowns from patient’s mouths that have turned blue, gray, and had several metals mixed in different colors. Dr. Russo is passionate about mercury-free fillings as he sees the chemical residue leached into patients teeth from mercury fillings almost daily. There is a better dental solution!
