METAL FILLINGS- SHOULD WE BAN THEM?
A recent study by the European Commission has recommended phasing out the use of dental amalgam owing to mercury's negative impact on the environment. The study also stated that some dentists are ''reluctant to change their current practice and invest in new equipment to handle mercury free fillings''.
At Progressive Dentistry, we do NOT use any mercury containing metal fillings. Dr Nissit Patel says '' I would not want a metal filling placed in my mouth or in my children so I will certainly not consider placing them for my patients. With modern dentistry and the development of adhesive dentistry, white tooth coloured restorations can be placed predictably and safely with fantastic aesthetic results.''
The options vary from direct composite fillings, to indirect porcelain fillings and crowns. We constantly invest in the latest technology and materials, to offer our patients the very best in dentistry today.
