Disadvantages Of Metal Fillings
Older metal (amalgam) fillings are more destructive, potentially dangerous, and should be replaced according to the FDA. Unfortunately, many people who have had teeth fillings in the past probably have had the primitive metal-based silver or mercury fillings. This older solution of amalgam fillings is proven to eventually be detrimental to the health and structure of the tooth. Fortunately, you can have your amalgam fillings replaced with newer resin composite fillings which are made of a ceramic and plastic compound.
Advantages Of Resin Composite Fillings
In short, the process involves a natural, tooth-colored resin composite material to match your tooth color and bond directly its surface. The strong bonding property of metal-free filling adds strength and durability to the tooth while sealing out bacteria and providing long lasting protection. Strong bonding properties reduces the need for tooth reduction compared to metal amalgam fillings, making them a more conservative restoration. Metal-free fillings are a solid restoration that will not risk the health of your tooth in any way. As an added bonus, the composite resins in metal-free fillings can be color-matched by dentist to your existing teeth. As a result, tooth-colored fillings will naturally and seamlessly go with the rest of your smile. No one has to know you’ve had restorative dentistry! Not only are the benefits of natural looking fillings beneficial for your teeth aesthetically, but it also is much healthier for your teeth and gums in the long run.
