Types of Dental Fillings
Dental fillings using “Amalgam” has consistently remained a topic regarding their safety and effects on overall health. Mercury has been discussed to be a known poison and is one of the most toxic elements in chemistry. Mercury can evaporate in the mouth and inhaled into your body. Numerous patients and academics see this as damaging to their overall health.
At the Beverly Hills Dental Center, Dr. Roger Eshaghian uses safe composite dental fillings that are free of mercury and more holistically beneficial for your health. Mercury-free fillings results in reduced temperature sensitivity and are flexible in growing around the tooth structure. In addition, amalgam fillings can make the teeth more vulnerable to damage.
Composite fillings restore the natural strength of the teeth because they are directly bonded to them. This reduces the probability of experiencing tooth damage and chips. During the treatment, composite fillings conserve a higher volume of enamel by creating a smaller hole on the teeth. The decayed areas of the teeth are removed and the fillings are applied to restore the lost enamel. The result of the treatment is an improved smile in health and natural appearance.
We also provide white fillings that naturally look like your teeth. They are closely matched to your teeth appearance and require less drilling. This is beneficial for patients with high sensitivity to intensive procedures performed on their teeth.
