Mercury Free and Lead Free
All of our dental restorations are mercury free and lead free. In fact virtually all of our restorations are completely metal free. Recent concerns over the role of mercury in dental fillings, as it relates to patient health, has lead us to eliminate the silver/mercury fillings from our treatment protocol.
All of our fillings and crowns are made of white composite or ceramics. However, recently concerns have been raised over the amount of lead that is present in the porcelain restorations that have been outsourced to China. Many dental laboratories, in an effort to cut cost, have been sending out their crown and bridge work to be fabricated in China.
However the Chinese government doesn’t have the stringent controls that the U.S. has on acceptable levels of lead in our products. Law suits are already being filed by patients who have had adverse health effects after receiving such restorations from their dentists.
Dr. Acosta is proud to say that all of our crown and bridgework is made in America and meets or exceeds all government safety guidelines.
We believe in safety because we are also patients, and our personal information is also stored here in our facility. We employ the same measures to protect you that we use to protect ourselves.
