Mercury-free dentistry involves the exclusion of mercury in the dental office. You have probably never been told that your teeth are being repaired with mercury. Where mercury is a part of dentistry is in amalgam filling material.
Dental amalgam was formulated more than a hundred and fifty years ago. This material, which contains various metals, was intended as an affordable alternative to gold filling material. Containing nickel, tin, and other metals together is mercury. In the century and a half since amalgam was developed, several other options for fillings have become available. Amalgam, however, has remained one of the most frequently used restorative materials.

Amalgam alternatives are healthy and attractive

The use of mercury amalgam fillings no longer makes sense with the alternative options that exist. Dr. Kovtun uses beautiful, healthy materials that do not pose a risk to the body and that completely hide the fact that cavities ever existed. Tooth-colored composite resin fillings, porcelain onlays, and gold onlays are very durable.

Dr. Kovtun is great. I chipped my 7-year molar, and he was able to fit me in the very next morning! He safely, quickly, and painlessly removed my old amalgam filling and prepped my tooth with a temporary fix while I wait for a beautiful new permanent one. He is knowledgeable, informative, and accomodating. The staff is super-competent and friendly. I will definitely be scheduling other dental procedures here. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
