Holistic Dental Alternatives to An Amalgam Tooth Filling

Staying true to our holistic approach to dentistry, we do not offer any filling material that contains mercury at Emerald City Smiles in Mountlake Terrace. With today’s technology, there are many great alternatives to amalgam tooth fillings.

Metal-Free | Mercury-Free Options

  • Zirconia: This tooth-colored, ultra-hard, ultra-strong ceramic is the best alternative to gold or other metals for crowns on molar teeth. Life span: 20+ years
  • eMax: This is reinforced lithium disilicate glass material has excellent strength and esthetic properties. Life span: 20+ years
  • Composite Resin (“White” tooth filling): This plastic putty-like material contains ceramic particles. The dentist places it in the cavity and hardens it with a high-intensity light. This newer material has excellent strength and esthetic properties. Life span:15-20 years.

Partnering with Medical Professionals

Even though we are a dental practice (and we know our job inside and out!), we do not dispense medical advice. We work with all allied health care professionals such as medical, chiropractic, and naturopathic doctors, as well as acupuncturists.

We help people who need to have mercury amalgam fillings removed, because in the past, medical providers did not consider the long-term risks and hazards associated with placing them. If you have concerns regarding specific medical symptoms and whether they may be related to mercury toxicity, we urge you to consult with your primary medical care professional.

When looking for a medical professional to partner with, we feel it is essential to find someone that understands and respects the holistic nature of your body and overall health. Your body is a complex system and any issues you currently or may potentially deal with should not be considered separately from the rest of your system. Many great doctors out there emphasize the importance of a holistic approach to a healthy body and a healthy life.

If you do not have a medical care provider, we would be happy to recommend one to you who has expertise in the area of mercury toxicity.
