Dr. Rogers’ practice uses biocompatible, metal-free materials for all restorations. Our fillings and crowns not only look just like natural teeth, but they are also much safer than traditional mercury restorations.
Mercury fillings cause teeth to become dark colored and damage the remaining part of the tooth that they are meant to protect. They also expand and contract with temperature changes causing weakening structure and breakage. Perhaps the biggest concern is that these traditional fillings can leak harmful mercury into the body for up to 20 years.
Using biomimetic dentistry techniques, our white fillings and crowns do not require nearly as much removal of existing tooth structure as traditional fillings. We remove only the most necessary portions of damaged teeth. The materials used to restore teeth are completely safe and biocompatible. They also mimic tooth structure to stimulate the gums just as natural teeth would. White fillings provide the healthiest and lonest lasting tooth restorations available.
