Mercury Free Dentistry in Saint Paul, MN

Worried About Amalgam Mercury Fillings In Your Mouth?

Upgrade to Composite Fillings & Put Your Mind at Ease

When a small cavity infiltrates your dental enamel or dentin, a composite filling can restore your tooth, and keep you from needing more intense treatment, like root canal therapy.

Many old fillings contain mercury; these are called amalgam fillings. Unfortunately, amalgam restorations have a number of downsides:

  • They look dark and metallic on the tooth’s surface
  • They are heat reactive, so they expand and contract, which destabilizes the filling
  • They are prone to corroding or cracking

At MCMID we have been mercury-free for over 30 years. We always use natural-looking white fillings to maintain the health and beauty of your smile.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Why do so many patients trust the Minnesota Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry for mercury-free dentistry?

What Our Patients Are Saying

After working with Dr. Malterud for a couple of weeks to get the right fit for my NTI, the results are great. I may still get a headache but only for a few hours and not severe.

It's hard to believe that something so small could change my life in such a big way. I have been pain free without drugs or surgery for years now. My teeth have been saved from more damage because I don't grind them any more.
