Amalgam fillings, also known as silver or metal fillings, date back to the early 1800’s. Amalgam is a combination of mercury, silver, tin, and copper. The majority of this combination of metals consists of mercury.
The continued use of amalgam fillings has become a controversial subject in the world of dentistry. Many dentists and dental associations, including the American Dental Association, believe that the use of amalgam fillings is safe. There are dentists and physicians that believe that amalgam fillings pose a safety concern for both patients and the environment.
At Bonita Dental, we value both the safety of our patients and the well being of our environment and therefore, have implemented the use of mercury-free fillings into our Scottsdale practice. Mercury-free fillings are tooth-colored which means they blend well with your natural tooth structure. Mercury-free fillings are also durable and long lasting when taken care of.
Dr. Diana Batoon and associates are here to answer any questions that you may have about mercury-free dentistry. If you have considered removing your old amalgam fillings, we welcome you to book a free, no-obligation consultation here at our Scottsdale practice.
Thank you to Bonita Dental for helping out our family! The doctor and the staff are thorough, helpful, understanding, consistent, dedicated and compassionate. Their work is flawless! I couldn’t be more grateful for such a wonderful establishment!

I recently went in to have some work done that I have been putting off for sometime. I had two crowns that I desperately needed. The entire procedure went well. I have been going there for some time now and the staff has always been friendly. I have two boys that I bring in there too. They always make me feel comfortable which is extremely important to me.
