Mercury Free Dentistry

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 the 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 hides the fact that cavities ever existed. Tooth-colored composite resin fillings, porcelain onlays, and gold onlays are very durable.

Safe amalgam removal - We are happy to share details of our process with you during your visit.

We give your smile the very best. Call (617) 274-8494 to learn more about mercury-free dentistry.

I drive over an hour from Cape Cod for all my dental work because Dr. Kovtun is one of the few Biological dentists around. Not only is he a master at dentistry but he offers a healthier holistic approach to oral health that is so important to me. Often times, conventional dentists overlook at the importance or how oral health effects the entire body. He and his staff are super nice and I'm glad I found them!! Read More

Have been a patient here for quite a while now. It was hard to find a dentist that I trusted in the area, but I've really enjoyed this practice. They tend to be conservative with their assessment, which I really value - no unnecessary treatments, and my teeth feel and look great. Read More

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!!
