Dr. Chaudhry does NOT place dental amalgam in his practice.
He places bonded composite (white) restorations which offer better strength and esthetics. There is less drilling of natural tooth structure when doing composite restorations.
Dental Amalgam is a commonly used dental filling that has been used for over 150 years. It is a mixture of mercury with at least one other metal.
The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs has concluded that both amalgam and composite materials are considered safe and effective for tooth restoration.
