Mercury Free Tooth Colored Fillings
Resin composite fillings are made from tooth-colored material. They are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry because they look so natural, are strong, mercury-free, bio-compatible, and securely bonded to the tooth. They can be used for restoring decayed or damaged areas of a tooth or for cosmetic improvements. If you have a cavity in a tooth, broken fillings, mercury fillings, or amalgam fillings then Composite Resin Fillings are worth discussing. Mercury or amalgam fillings can easily be removed and replaced with more attractive and natural colored Composite Resin fillings.
After the composite resin is prepared, Dr Suri will place the composite on the tooth in layers and then uses a special curing light to harden the filling. When the process is complete, she will shape the composite to perfectly fit the tooth, and polish the area to make it more stain resistant and durable.
Advantages of Resin Composite Fillings
Composite fillings have many advantages over other types of fillings:
- Mercury free: A small percentage of people may have allergic reactions to traditional amalgam fillings.
- Natural Looking : Dr. Suri will skillfully blend composite resins to perfectly match the actual tooth’s color. Consequently, teeth repaired with composite fillings look natural.
- Stronger Bonding : Composite fillings bond strongly to the teeth and help support the existing tooth structure. This will help prevent breakage and will insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
