Our dentist can make make your old, mercury fillings look more natural by removing and replacing them with porcelain fillings. The structure of the tooth is held together by porcelain, strengthening the teeth. Mercury often cracks and falls out of teeth because it doesn't bond to the tooth.

Porcelain fillings offer patients a more natural smile without the mercury.
