Our “basic” dental care goes above and beyond, ensuring that your teeth remain healthy and beautiful.
One of the ways we distinguish ourselves is through the use of BPA free composites as an alternative to traditional amalgam. There are many advantages to composite fillings. They include.
Our teeth play an important role in our self-confidence, and because of this, it is important to feel good about our smiles. Beautiful smiles are seen as a sign of happiness, health, and success, and can leave a lasting first impression.
In the past, silver amalgam fillings were the first choice of many dentists due to their durability. These fillings were often easily identifiable in the smile, even in the back of the mouth. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we believe in safe, environmentally friendly composite resin fillings. These fillings are made of a combination of powdered glass and resin and can be matched to blend in with the rest of the tooth. No longer do patients have to deal with dark spots on the teeth simply because of a small cavity.
Composite resin is a safe, metal-free biocompatible material to use in the body. In addition to being natural-looking, patients can be confident that this type of material does not pose toxicity risks.
Placement of composite resin fillings is straightforward and only requires a few steps. To begin, we prepare the area by using a local anesthetic and removing the damaged portion of the tooth. Once the area of the tooth is cleaned out and dry, we can apply the composite resin and bond it into place. This process helps ensure that as much of the natural tooth as possible is preserved. Once the cavity is completely filled, a special light will harden the composite into place. The filling can then be smoothed out for a proper bite surface.
