Mercury Free Dentistry

Dr Neil Cheesman genuinely cares about his patients which is why his practice is mercury free.

Why mercury free fillings?

Mercury is a highly toxic substance and constitutes about 50% of an average silver filling.
As mercury expands with heat, the intake of hot foods and liquids can cause amalgam fillings to expand and give rise to micro-cracks within the tooth. Eventually, corners or even the sides of teeth crack off with the resultant loss of sound tooth structure.

We are a mercury free practice.

Your health and wellbeing are our priority which is why we are a mercury free practice. Dr Cheesman is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of dentistry and takes every precaution to provide all patients with a safe and hygienic environment. With composite resin fillings now having a proven track record it is no longer necessary to use amalgam.

Do you want safe, tooth coloured fillings?

Composite fillings are free from mercury and are designed to blend in with your natural tooth, so your dental work is discrete and functional.

Additional benefits to having composite fillings:

  • Composite fillings don’t require as much of your tooth to be removed before being filled so you can maintain more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Composite fillings are bonded into the tooth restoring the strength of your tooth.
  • We carefully match the composite filling to your tooth colour so your filling will blend in with your smile.
