Restore your teeth to a natural appearance...
...through mercury free fillings
Dr. Whalen is concerned about the overall health and well-being of his dental patients, he does not use any materials that contain mercury. Not only do silver metal fillings detract from the natural beauty of your smile, they can actually damage the teeth they’re meant to protect.
Metal in your mouth reacts to temperature changes just as metal outside your mouth does. It expands when exposed to heat and contracts when exposed to cold. This constant movement within your tooth weakens the tooth wall and can cause the tooth to crack
"Silver" amalgam fillings are 50% mercury, which is very toxic, even in small amounts.
Due to its poisonous nature, mercury can adversely affect the immune, urinary, cardiac, respiratory, and digestive systems. Under laboratory conditions, mercury has produced brain cell deterioration identical to that seen in victims of Alzheimer's disease, according to the American Dental Association.
With so many other, better and safer choices available, Dr. Whalen chooses not to offer amalgam, mercury-containing fillings to his patients. Your dental work will be a part of your body for a very long time. Don’t you want to be sure that the materials used will be safe for years to come?
