BPA Safe / Metal-Free

Scottsdale, AZ

A big part of what makes metal-free tooth restoration so desirable is the aesthetic appearance of it. People needing dental work done like the idea of their fillings blending in with the color of their natural teeth.

Though the attractive appearance of metal-free fillings is a valid reason to choose this alternate material, there are also health benefits associated with choosing metal-free, BPA-free filling material.

Safe Filling Material

Dr. Fattah and the staff at Scottsdale Family Smiles understand patient concerns and as such, the office provides safe metal-free filling options. As part of our goal of offering natural, holistic care, our office strives to ensure that our patients receive the safest, BPA-safe and non-metal filling material. 

In addition to the way our composite fillings match tooth colors, we also pride ourselves in providing filling material that is efficient and more gentle to the structure of the tooth. Because our filling material does not contain metal, it also does not expand over time the way metal fillings do. 

As a result, our patients run far less risk of experiencing small tooth fractures that weaken the tooth surface and allow bacteria an easier entry point to cause infection. 

By comparison, our BPA-free material is a lot like a tooth’s natural enamel, and it responds to temperature in similar ways.

Metal-free Tooth Restoration

Traditional filling material, though effective, is made up of approximately 50% mercury. This content measurement is separate from the mercury vapor released into patients’ mouths whenever the fillings are heated due to the friction of chewing food.

This is a concern for many patients being that mercury is poisonous. Though the mercury exposure from dental fillings is considered minimal, it’s understandable that patients are seeking alternative materials.

On top of the concern associated with metal fillings, many people are hesitant to opt for BPA-containing composite fillings as well. This is due to the possibility of BPA being released into the mouth.

Benefits of BPA-Safe, Metal-Free Material

  • Our filling material requires only a minimal reduction of the tooth’s natural structure compared to traditional filling material.
  • Our filling material helps improve the strength and integrity of a damaged tooth.
  • Our filling material does not release ANY form of toxic substances into our patients’ mouths.
  • Our filling material hardens much faster than traditional amalgam material.
  • Our filling material runs less of a risk of causing tooth sensitivity.
  • Our filling material looks natural and is difficult to notice when our patients smile.
