West Palm Beach dentist offers a tooth colored filling
Cavities are a common concern among many patients in West Palm Beach. Even with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, cavities can still arise in areas that are hard to reach. At Pure Dental Care, a cavity can be repaired aesthetically with a tooth colored filling.
In the past, the standard of care for addressing cavities and decay was silver amalgam fillings. These fillings are composed of up to 50 percent mercury. Through years of research, it’s been determined that mercury is a toxic substance that can be harmful to humans. When mercury is heated, which can occur during normal brushing, chewing, and consuming hot foods or beverages, toxic vapors are released. These toxins can then be absorbed into the blood or inhaled which can put patients at an increased risk for various medical conditions.
Pure Dental Care offer safe, natural-looking tooth-colored fillings.
What are tooth-colored fillings?
Tooth colored fillings are made of composite resin, a material that is safe for the mouth and body while also blending in seamlessly with the tooth. Composite resin fillings have many advantages including:
- Long-lasting – tooth colored fillings do not expand and contract like amalgam. This makes them much less susceptible to breakage and last longer than their silver alternative.
- Safe – the composite resin bonds directly to the tooth, which keeps bacteria from entering and causing additional infection.
- Beautiful – tooth colored fillings will blend in seamlessly with the smile so no one will even be able to tell you have a restoration.
At our West Palm Beach office, our mission is to provide safe, effective, and beautiful dental restorations that give patients the beautiful smile they deserve. If you would like more information on tooth colored fillings and other restorative dental procedures, call 855-883-0355 today.
