Mercury-Free Dentistry

Dental Fillings Without Mercury

White or Tooth-colored fillings are made to mimic the natural appearance of the tooth. Free of mercury and other potentially hazardous metals, these fillings can also be used to restore teeth that have been chipped or fractured. If you have several unsightly amalgam (silver) fillings, they can be replaced with beautiful composite fillings custom matched to your own teeth in about an hour in our Mission Viejo office by a cosmetic dentist, Dr. E. M. Makhoul, DDS.

At EM Makhoul DDS - Dentist of Mission Viejo, we pride ourselves on our advanced technology, and personalized conscientious care. We don’t take shortcuts when it comes to providing the best care and the most beautiful results for a Smile Makeover.

Uses for Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings offer another advantage over metal amalgam fillings because the material can be sculpted. Beyond restoring a decaying tooth, tooth-colored fillings can be used to fix:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Imperfections in the appearance of teeth

White or Tooth colored fillings are not the answer to every dental problem. If you have a large area that needs restoration, porcelain inlays or veneers may be the best choice. Other filling options can provide superior strength, so if you struggle with bruxism, tooth colored fillings may not be strong enough to stand up to tooth grinding or clenching.

The best restoration will depend on your particular dental circumstances. Dr. Makhoul will assess your entire mouth and help you make the best choice based on the current condition of your teeth and gums, as well as the size and location of the area to be restored.
