Healthier, more natural-looking replacement fillings.
If you’re of a certain age, you may have had your cavities filled with black mercury. Not only are these fillings unsightly, they’re also unhealthy.
It’s a known fact that mercury is a highly toxic substance. Some scientific researchers claim that each time you bite down on mercury-based fillings, you may be releasing a small amount of mercury vapor into your mouth, and thus into your system. This “mercury mist” builds up in the body over the years, which can lead to a toxic reaction.
Dr. Koczarski can replace your old, worn mercury fillings with modern tooth-colored composite materials. Composite restorations are non-toxic and aesthetically pleasing, and can give the finished tooth twice the strength it had before the mercury filling was replaced.
