Patients seek a well-known mercury free dentist in Austin, TX
Some men and women in Austin, TX are seeking a mercury-free/mercury-safe dentist who is concerned about their oral, as well as overall health. Dr. Griffin Cole and our team have been providing mercury-free/mercury-safe dentistry for more than 20 years. The doctor and our team are highly sought after for their skill, conservative procedures, and their kindness and compassion towards patients.
Providing mercury free and mercury safe dentistry
Dr. Cole and our team understand the effects materials and procedures can have on the overall body. Therefore, we choose the most conservative treatments possible to preserve the health of the smile. We offer a mercury free environment and mercury safe procedures.
By being a mercury-free office, we do not use amalgam for fillings. Amalgam is composed of half mercury, a potent neurotoxin. Studies have linked mercury with heart conditions, neurological issues, and birth defects. Instead of amalgam, we utilize safer materials.
As a mercury-safe practice, Dr. Cole and our staff have the training required to safely remove amalgam fillings. We follow strict protocols set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology for amalgam removal. In fact, Dr. Cole is the featured dentist instructing all dentists about the SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) process which can be viewed at www.thesmartchoice.com by following this protocol, we protect our patients, our staff, and our environment.
We utilize safe and biocompatible materials such as composite resin and porcelain, which are also natural looking and blend nicely with the smile. Composite resin is versatile and utilized for dental bonding and cosmetic fillings. Porcelain, used for crowns and veneers, is translucent and mimics natural tooth enamel.
