While dentists have long used traditional metal fillings to fill cavities, that technique is becoming more and more obsolete. Today, dentists are turning to resin composite fillings. These fillings are much safer than metal and have a natural, tooth-colored appearance. Resin composite fillings are biocompatible, mercury free and strong.
We only use natural looking tooth colored white fillings and have completely discontinued the use of silver and mercury fillings. Not only are these materials safer and more conservative than metal fillings, but they also eliminate unsightly metal, bringing back the natural strength and beauty of your teeth.
At BioDental, we are concerned not only for your dental health but for your mouth’s physical and aesthetic appearance as well. You can be sure that when you come to see Dr. Shawn Matian, your oral health and appearance will be in the most knowledgeable hands.
The advantages of resin composite fillings are:
- Easily matches tooth color
- Natural appearance
- Supports tooth structure
- Helps prevent breakage of the tooth enamel
- Almost zero risk of allergic reaction
Once your teeth have been filled with tooth-colored composite resin or restored with inlays or onlays, they should receive the same care as normal teeth. Just like natural teeth, daily maintenance is required, including brushing, flossing, mouthwash, as well as preventive treatment to maintain proper strength and appearance.
BioDental is a premier dental office that offers affordable fillings in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. In addition to white fillings, Dr. Matian offers a wide array of general and cosmetic procedures including porcelain veneers, Snap-On Smile, Invisalign, and many other corrective treatments.
