Years ago, the main protocol for dental fillings and restorations was to use amalgam or silver-colored filling material that contains mercury. These amalgam fillings not only contain mercury that can be harmful to the body, but they also expand at a much faster rate than the tooth and cause fracturing and can harbor decay underneath the filling. Today, the better option is to restore the teeth with metal-free options such as composite tooth-colored fillings or porcelain. However, many people have already had amalgam fillings placed that will need to be replaced... See More

In order to have a beautiful, radiant smile, the first and most important thing is to ensure that the mouth is healthy. This may require some restorative dentistry such as tooth colored composite fillings, Zirconia metal free implants and/or porcelain crowns. Restorative dentistry can complement cosmetic dentistry so that the patient can have the healthy smile that they’ve always wanted. 45 year old female patient S.K. presented to Dentist San Francisco Mina Levi, DDS with a complicated cosmetic and restorative case. The patient was missing her left and right lateral incisors and had discolored and crowded teeth. The first step in the treatment plan with Dentist San Francisco was to go through Invisalign orthodontic treatment to straighten the teeth and at the same time, place Zirconia metal free implants in the spaces of the lateral incisors. This allows the teeth to be straightened and the bone to heal around the implants.

Amalgam fillings, or silver colored fillings, are seen every day in many patients’ teeth from prior years’ dental work.

The practice of removing amalgam fillings needs a strict protocol in order to protect the patient and the dental team from the mercury vapors of amalgam fillings... See More

66 year old female L.D. presented to Dentist San Francisco Mina Levi, DDS with an old broken partial denture and needed to explore full mouth reconstruction with minimally invasive options. There are multiple ways to approach a full mouth reconstruction. The first is to place implants in the areas of the missing teeth and restore with crowns. This is the most bio-mimetic option as the implant acts just as a natural tooth root would. However, this option is also the most expensive. Another option is to replace the partial denture. The most cost-effective option, however is to replace the denture with Snap-On Smile. .. See More
