North Bridge Dental strives to be an amalgam free practice. Ninety-nine percent of our restorations will be tooth colored fillings (Composites).
That being said – there are times when amalgams still need to be placed. When the situation arises where an amalgam would be more beneficial than a composite restoration, we will present to you the options and give our reasoning. You make the final decision.
We do not pressure you to replace your amalgam fillings with composite ones for our financial benefit. Doing so is not ethical.
Amalgams have been the gold standard filling material for decades. For the ADA’s stance on the issue, please click on the following link: http://www.ada.org/en/about-the-ada/ada-positions-policies-and-statements/statement-on-dental-amalgam
