BPA-Safe Fillings in Sacramento, CA.
Many people like the idea of tooth-colored fillings that can be “hidden” in the smile. While metal-free restorations are indeed more attractive, there are also health advantages that come from the selection of BPA free fillings.
The advantage of BPA-safe composites
While the natural appearance of a composite dental filling is very advantageous, your biological dentist primarily uses this material for its safety and efficacy. In addition to being a healthier option than mercury amalgam fillings, the composite restoration is also kinder to tooth structure. Because amalgam fillings contain metal, they expand and contract more than natural enamel. This movement of the filling material gradually causes fractures in the weakened tooth wall, allowing microbes to get beneath the filling where they can cause infection. Our BPA-safe composite restorations are similar to enamel in the way they respond to temperature change. The repair process is also different, with bonding achieving tighter margins through which bacteria cannot gain access to hidden areas.
The benefits of BPA-safe, mercury-free fillings include:
- More conservative process due to the minimal reduction of natural tooth structure
- Restoration of strength through a precise bonding process
- Stable material does not release toxic substances into the mouth
- Resistant to corrosion and fractures
- More attractive and natural looking
- Composite cures (hardens) more quickly than amalgam
- Less chance of tooth sensitivity
What our patients say about BPA-safe fillings Treatment
“I recently was looking for a holistic dentist and came across Dr. Azouz. Dr. Azouz was actually my dentist many years ago. I am so glad that I found him. Last week I went in to him to get a filling fixed that my previous dentist had done. I was in a lot of pain. Dr. Azouz fixed the issue and I am pain free! Dr. Azouz is very focused and meticulous about his work. He really takes his time to listen to his patients. His staff is wonderful also. I was so well taken care of. I am delighted to be in such good hands.“Victoria W.
