North Haven Family Dentistry and Dr. Bhupatiraju are familiar and equipped to handle all of your dental needs. We are a team that cares about every patient and will be sure to give you excellent service and solutions that will put your mind at ease. Frequently, we have questions about fillings and that is the type of dental work that we can help you with and put your mind at ease too.
Why Metal-Free Fillings?
Metal-free fillings are also known as composite resin fillings. We find this to be a good option for our patients because the filling is tooth-colored and even bio-compatible.
The common silver, metal fillings are not a quality option for your mouth. They often cause decay underneath the filling and we don’t want that to be the case for our patients. We believe that metal-free fillings are the way to go and can walk you through the process with ease.
Metal-Free Filling Procedure
We try to make this procedure go quickly and smoothly. First, Dr. Bhupatiraju will remove the decayed tooth and any metal filling that may already be there. Then she will apply a gel and bonding agent which enables the composite resin to stick to the tooth. Once the resin is put into the tooth by layer, it is cured, adjusted, and finally polished so it looks great. The goal is to leave our patients with a natural look that helps you feel confident as you smile.
Strength of Composite Resins
Composite resins are durable, strong, and just a stable solution for fillings. Metal-free fillings last a long time and are quite comfortable for patients too. In fact, they will often last longer than metal fillings while keeping the tooth stronger.
Composite restorations are something that our team handles regularly. We would be honored to assist you with such a need and leave you with a lasting solution that will enable you to feel at ease.
