Dr. Benton realizes the concerns patients have regarding metal alloy and mercury restorations. Rest assured that our practice places only the highest of quality metal free porcelain, Zirconia and Resin (tooth colored fillings) restorations.
Another benefit to metal-free restorations that many of our patients appreciate is that there is no amalgam in the restorations we provide. Amalgam has been linked to a variety of health issues, including mercury poisoning and asthma. Evidence of this problem has been mounting for years, and many of our Hot Springs patients have elected to have their old amalgam restorations replaced as a result.
At Benton Family Dentistry, in Hot Springs Arkansas, we can assist with this process or provide you with new metal-free restorations if this is the first time you have damaged a particular tooth. For the sake of your health, we use ceramic or resin restorations.
