Knowledge is Health

If you are reading this, I am sure you read the labels of most foods you eat.  I'm sure you are concerned with what is in your water.  So I am sure you are concerned about what is in your dental fillings and crowns.  The old black mercury fillings do contain mercury.  They even give off small mercury vapor when you choose.  The government says that they are ok.  And so dentist can place these fillings.  I prefer to place the newer composite, plastic, fillings.  If for no other reason than they look like teeth.  The new composites can last for very long time as well.  In my opinion though you should be sure to that your next composite does not contain Bisphenol A (BPA).  Some countries, like Canada, have banned BPA plastics due to possible health concerns.  At Elite Smiles we only use BPA free products that are used with our guests.  Ultimately though the best I can do for you is to use a special ceramic called eMax.  It is incredibly strong and looks just  like a tooth.  It is what I have used with my father, mother, sister and wife.  These dental crowns and fillings will last and have none of the drawbacks that the composite fillings have.  So you if you want the best, in my opinion, use eMax.  If you have any questions or want to make an appointment, call (904)940-3933 or click our CONTACT.
