Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Mercury safe dentistry in Greenville, SC helps keep your smile beautiful and healthy

Mercury Safe Dentistry Greenville SC

A major component of dental care is restorative services. For holistic dental providers, there is no difference, as there will always be guests who require treatment for gum disease or other problems. The difference lies in the types of materials that are used for these restoration procedures.


There has been an ongoing conversation between organizations, dental providers, and guests about the safety of certain dental materials. One of the most controversial is amalgam. Amalgam fillings have been used for many decades and were once the standard of care, but they have come under fire in recent years. This can leave many guests wondering, “Is there a real danger?”


At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, SC, we are very particular about the materials we use in our procedures and have opted to be a mercury free practice. It is our belief that based up on studies and research, amalgam contains enough mercury to pose a risk to our guests. You may be aware of the fact that mercury is no longer used in household items such as thermometers due to its toxicity, why then, should it be used in your mouth?


Amalgam fillings leave guests continually exposed to mercury day in and day out. Guests are exposed to mercury vapors in the mouth when they perform activities such as brushing teeth, biting, and chewing. This type of exposure can compromise the immune system and it has been shown to increase antibiotic resistance.


Our practice believes in using natural-looking, safe, and effective alternatives to silver mercury fillings (amalgams). Materials such as ceramic, porcelain, and composite can all be used for strong, long-lasting restorations that blend in perfectly with the remaining natural teeth.


As a holistic provider, we believe any materials used in the mouth can have a profound impact on the wellness of the body. As such, we treat oral issues as a part of overall health issues and are careful to treat the guest as a whole with the safest materials. If you want a dentist who will take the safest method possible to restore your oral health and help you enjoy a beautiful smile, call us today for your appointment.
