Las Vegas Smile Center proudly offers the most cutting-edge technology for metal-free dentistry in Las Vegas, making metal sensitivity a thing of the past.For years there are people who have reported side effects to the mixture of silver, tin, copper, and mercury, which comprises about 50% of the compound.
These four metals are present in traditional fillings, whose issues seem to affect people beyond aesthetics. For decades now, amalgam has been the default choice of filling, but more published research continues to suggest that metal sensitivities may be more widely spread than previously thought.
Mercury seems to be the most concerning of the metals; over 50% of the mixture is actually mercury, a powerful bonding agent known for its durability...and questionable safety. It’s precisely this controversy that has led Las Vegas Smile Center to completely phase out metal amalgams, offering our patients a safer option.
Less of the tooth has to be drilled to properly fit porcelain and composite resin, which is better at keeping bacteria at bay. In fact, people have reported their metal fillings to reshape with temperature and time, forming openings that allow bacteria to enter and cause decay.
