Composite (tooth-colored) Fillings
City of Angels is proud to offer you with only high quality, proven materials. We are an amalgam-free practice because we believe that, although amalgam (silver filling) does have its strengths, it is an outdated material with potential health hazards. With the continuous development of dental materials in the late 20th and early 21st Century, plenty of other materials have emerged in the market that do not contain mercury and that can provide you with better esthetic and functional results. Composite (tooth-colored) fillings are esthetically, functionally, and biologically superior to silver fillings.
Although scientifically it hasn't been shown that amalgam fillings release enough mercury to have any significant effect to health, we understand that some of us would rather not take the risk. If you would like your existing silver fillings removed, we can do that for you under a safe and controlled environment. We will make sure to provide you with protection from swallowing or inhaling the amalgam being removed and replace it with a beautiful composite filling.
