Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

Why Mercury Free Cosmetic Dentistry is Preferred Over Silver Amalgam Restorations in NC
Several years ago, the only options patients had for restoring their teeth after decay was silver amalgam fillings. This metal filling was combined with mercury to fill cavities. However, studies have shown that mercury can release toxins, which can be harmful to patients' health. Now, there are alternative materials such as composite resin bonding. This material can also be used to fill areas of tooth decay, and have a number of benefits over silver amalgam. Additionally, it is completely safe and it will not negatively affect one's health.

Silver amalgam is made up of approximately 50 percent mercury. Mercury toxicity can result in several medical concerns including depression, anxiety, and autoimmune disorders. Instead of risking one's health and wellbeing for a cavity, Dr. Virtue prefers to run his practice mercury free for patients in the Yadkinville, NC area who take their dental health seriously.

Composite resin bonding is just as affordable as traditional silver amalgam fillings. It is often preferred because it provides a natural restoration. This tooth-colored material is used to fill areas of decay while also offering aesthetic improvements. The strength and durability of composite resin bonding is comparable to silver fillings.

Dr. Virtue of Virtue Dental Care is a firm believer in providing holistic and biological dentistry services to his patients. He understands the concern for a healthy smile and body, and he has seen studies that show the oral systemic connection between the mouth and body. By using safe materials in the body, such as composite resin, patients are increasing their chances of maintaining a healthy mouth and body for life!
