Cosmetic dentist Kourosh Maddahi understands that you want your smile to look as healthy as it feels. When he repairs your cavities, he uses only tooth-colored, durable materials to fill your teeth.
There are more than 7,000 materials currently available for dentists to use when they are treating your teeth. A smile transformation specialist, Dr. Maddahi takes care to test his patients for allergies or adverse reactions before choosing to use a particular compound.
Current technology has provided dentists with many choices that can be perfectly color-matched to your own teeth. Our tooth-colored fillings are beautiful, durable, and safe.
Many people do not realize that "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. With so many other, better and safer choices available, Dr. Maddahi chooses not to offer amalgam, mercury-containing fillings to his patients.
