Mercury Free Dentistry Solutions in Centerville

Alex Bell Dental offers Mercury free dental services to all of our patients. Mercury is a known biological toxin and Dr. Cobb believes firmly in biocompatible materials such as porcelain crowns and composite fillings as an alternative to amalgam fillings. In the past, amalgam fillings, which are composed of up to 50% mercury, were the standard of care.

Originally used as a low cost alternative to gold fillings, amalgam fillings gained in popularity as more and more people went to the dentist. Amalgam fillings are sensitive to temperature and can release toxic vapors when warmed through daily activities such as chewing or brushing your teeth. They can also develop tiny cracks that can allow bacteria growth and further tooth decay.

Composite Fillings

Dr. Cobb takes no chances with his patients’ health and offers mercury-free composite fillings. Composite fillings bond to the tooth structure with an adhesive. They can actually help strengthen the tooth and protect against decay. Composite fillings work best in small to moderate size cavities. For larger cavities other types of non -mercury restorations are preferred.

All-Porcelain Crowns

Crowns return strength, function, and structure to missing teeth or those with extreme decay. Porcelain crowns are designed to look like natural tooth enamel. They are h2, resilient, and long lasting, making them an excellent choice to restore tooth structure and create a beautiful smile. Crowns are usually designed, fabricated, and placed in just a few short appointments.

Advantages of biocompatible materials:

  • They can be color-matched to your natural tooth color, making them an aesthetically pleasing restorative option.
  • They are not temperature-sensitive.
  • They bond directly to the tooth.

Dr. Cobb views the health and wellbeing of his patients as his number one priority. He and the team at Alex Bell Dental focus on a safe and natural approach to your oral health.
