At The Sadati Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, we’re committed to using the latest advancements in dental technology, including metal-free fillings. This modern approach to dental restorations, led by Dr. Sadati, offers a safe, durable, and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal fillings.
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!
- Examination: Dr. Sadati assesses your dental health and identifies the need for fillings.
Removal of Decay
- Preparation: Gently removing decayed or damaged tooth material.
Placement of Metal-Free Fillings
- Application: Filling the cavity with a tooth-colored composite resin.
- Shaping: Molding the material to fit the natural contours of your tooth.
- Curing: Using a special light to harden the filling quickly.
- Finishing Touches: Polishing to achieve a smooth, natural look.
To extend the life of your metal-free fillings:
- Practice excellent oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.
- Schedule routine dental check-ups with Dr. Sadati.
- Avoid hard and sticky foods that can damage fillings.
Patients who receive metal-free fillings can expect:
- A restored, natural-looking smile.
- Reduced sensitivity and discomfort.
- A long-lasting solution to tooth decay.
