Mercury Free Dentistry – Biological Dentist

Dr. Frank Vidjak and Dr Fanny Yacaman practice mercury free dentistry, which means they do not use metal during dental restorations. As mercury free dentists, Drs Vidjak and Yacaman understand that the unnatural color of metal can make your smile less aesthetically pleasing and can even be dangerous to your health. Mercury free dentistry uses ceramic or porcelain materials when restoring your smile for natural-looking, safe results. Some patients have even opted to remove traditional metal fillings or other restorative devices for a more natural, whiter-looking smile. Mercury free dental procedures offer beautiful results that are safe, long-lasting, and effective at treating damaged, discolored, or unhealthy teeth.

What are the benefits of mercury free dentistry?

One of the most notable benefits of mercury free dentistry is a more natural-looking smile. When metal fillings, crowns, or inlays and onlays are placed, they make a smile less dazzling and look more unnatural. The ceramic or porcelain materials used by our mercury free dentist create a full, healthy smile that is bright, white, and natural-looking. Additionally, metal fillings or other metal restorations can contain small amounts of mercury, which is a dangerous substance to ingest. Because mercury is known to be unhealthy, many prosthodontists, dentists, and patients have opted for ceramic or porcelain restorations. On top of being more aesthetically pleasing, mercury free dental treatments also help to preserve the appearance, shape, and size of your natural teeth, while reducing the risk of further damage or decay.
