Protect your teeth and your self-confidence! One of the advancements of cosmetic dentistry over the years is new, composite materials. Amalgam or metal fillings often become larger and darker, and can make an impact on more than just your smile.
Metal-free composites are more compatible to our health, body, teeth and the oral cavity. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, which many of our guests are understandably uncomfortable with using. Metal fillings also require the removal of healthy tooth structure, making it a more invasive procedure. Undermining the structural integrity of the tooth in order to keep metal fillings in place leads to fractures, broken teeth or the need for crowns later.
With Dr. Sadati as your Miami dentist, benefits include:
- No stresses from metal expanding and contracting from varying temperatures.
- More conservation for long-term health and prevention of fractures.
- Adhesive dentistry that more effectively seals off bacteria exposure, known as ‘recurrent decay’.
- More attractive results!
However, modern materials require excellent technique. White fillings are technique-sensitive, requiring an experienced dentist with high attention-to-detail, as seen in Dr. Sadati. Contact us to see how preventing sensitivity, detailed color-matching and correct bite pressure are the standards of care for our Miami area dental guests!
