This 42 year old male patient reported having read in a magazine about mercury poisoning from metal ‘amalgam’ fillings. Although we assured him that most scientific data indicates that metal fillings are relatively safe, he wished to have his fillings replaced with porcelain. Using the state of the art Itero digital scanning ability we were able to replace those unattractive metal fillings with beautiful tooth colored (and safe) porcelain Onlays.
This 14 year old came home from a dentist appointment at another office with his first 2 cavities filled. When his mother saw the “ugly” metal Fillings in his mouth, she was horrified. She brought him to us and we replaced those amalgams with tooth colored fillings, making both him and his mother very pleased.
