Metal amalgams have been the filling of choice for decades, but as science and technology expands so too does our awareness: studies linking metal amalgams to negative side effects have caused countries in Europe to permanently ban their use, which is why we at 24th Street Dental Biltmore provide the most state-of-the-art metal free dentistry in Phoenix!
Composite resins are fillings made from plastics and glass, appearing close to your tooth color. They’re stronger than their alloy cousins, and since there’s no metal involved, composite resins don’t have any reported side effects.
Your Phoenix dentist will apply the composite in layers, careful to heat dry each layer before the next one is placed; this is to ensure strong and even drying. Once ready, the tooth will be polished to a smooth finish, further protecting it from early wear or decay.
There are many reasons to seek metal free dentistry in Phoenix, with aesthetics being a big part of composite’s appeal; they are far less conspicuous than metal fillings, and oftentimes people are unable to tell you even have a filling!
General comfort is another: metal naturally expands and contracts with changes in temperature, be it food or weather. Ultimately this leads to some discomfort in the mouth, with some patients suffering more so than others: the gaps can allow for bacteria to work its way in, causing even further damage to the cavity beneath.
Finally, composites are less invasive: they can be molded to your tooth with greater accuracy, with less drilling is required.
24th Street Dental Biltmore can restore your smile and health with the strongest metal free dentistry in Phoenix; call today and see how we can help!
