Dr. Sharon Shamoiel provides comprehensive mercury-free and amalgam-free dentistry. Although silver fillings have provided a great tool and have been very effective for many years, we strive ourselves on providing cosmetically beautiful smiles. With the advent and great improvement of composite fillings over the last twenty years, they are now fairly equal to amalgam with respect to strenght and reliability, while providing dramatically improved esthetics. They further require less tooth preparation therefore we are able to conserve a greater percentage of your natural tooth structure. In the majority of cases, your new composite filling will blend in perfectly with your natural teeth and be very hard to detect.
