Amalgam fillings, also commonly known as silver or metal fillings, have been used for more than 150 years. As dental technology has advanced, however, these traditional fillings have gradually been eclipsed by a preferable alternative: metal-free composite fillings. At Boston Smile Center & Implant Dentistry in Brookline, MA, Dr. J. Alan Sasson and his team use tooth-colored composite fillings rather than those made of metal in order to provide our patients with the best dental care possible.
Why Choose Mercury-Free Fillings?
There are a variety of clear advantages to the patient when mercury-free fillings are used. The most obvious of these is the aesthetic appeal of tooth-colored fillings. Silver amalgam fillings are dark and unsightly, marring the natural beauty of your smile. With composite resin fillings, you can smile, laugh, and speak with complete confidence. The fillings we use are color-matched to blend seamlessly with the shade of your natural teeth.
Another benefit of tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings is the aspect of conservation. When silver and mercury fillings are placed, the tooth affected by decay or other damage must be altered in order to accept the filling. Composite filling placement requires the removal of far less enamel, preserving more of your natural tooth.
Though the American Dental Association, or ADA, states that there is no danger associated with fillings that contain mercury, many dentists and patients prefer composite fillings because there is absolutely no risk of exposure to potentially harmful substances. In addition, the use and disposal of composite materials presents no risk of harm to the environment, whereas mercury fillings may prove detrimental to delicate components of our ecosystem.

Do you often find that you avoid laughing or smiling in public because you’re ashamed of the condition of your teeth? Has the condition of your mouth caused you embarrassment due to deep staining, gaps, or chipped teeth? At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his team want you to know how easy it can be to get a brand new smile you’ll actually want to show off with porcelain veneers.
Why Should I Choose Dental Veneers?
Hand-crafted of only the highest quality dental porcelain, dental veneers are incredibly thin, durable layers that are affixed to the front surfaces of your natural teeth. They can correct a variety of common cosmetic concerns, allowing you to finally smile with confidence. The most frequently corrected problems include:
- Teeth that are too small or oddly shaped
- Persistent yellowing, staining and discoloration
- Chipped or cracked enamel
- Minor misalignment
- Gaps between front teeth
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures designed to completely change the appearance of your features, the applications of porcelain veneers is simple and relatively quick. In fact, using only the latest technology available in the industry, Dr. Sasson can give you the bright, even smile you’ve always wanted in as little as two visits to his Brookline office. To see how our cosmetic dentistry services have changed the lives of a few of our patients, please feel free to take a look at our smile portfolio here.
