There is much controversy over the use of mercury-containing filling material (amalgam) for restorative dentistry techniques. Mercury is a known environmental and biologic toxin. As such, it must be treated as a hazardous material both before it goes into the mouth and after it is removed from the mouth. At SmilesNY, our state-of-the-art dental practice provides mercury free and mercury safe dentistry.
