Natural Dental Fillings
Savvy consumers have concerns about the chemicals that enter their bodies because being attentive to is part of living a healthy lifestyle. Your oral health has an impact on your overall health and well-being. When it comes to dental care, you want a practice that is aware of the chemicals that are being used in your mouth. Les Belles NYC is a conscientious practice where we pledge to use only safe and biocompatible materials.
Les Belles NYC uses composite materials with our cosmetic dentistry treatments that are free of BPA. Bisphenol A, or BPA, is an industrial chemical that has been used in the manufacturing of plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA has been linked to certain health concerns. As part of our commitment to the overall health of our patients, we do not use filling materials that includes mixed metals, mercury, or those which have BPA. Advancements in dental materials and technologies have produced natural-looking filling materials that do not contain BPA but that still deliver aesthetic appeal, durability, and longevity.
What is a natural dental filling?
A natural dental filling is a tooth-colored filling material made from ceramic or glass and plastic resin. Many composite materials contain BPA, and though it is said the small amount used in dental fillings is safe, Les Belles NYC chooses not to use any materials that we deem unhealthy for our patients. The products we do use are PBA-free and biocompatible. Natural fillings provide the aesthetics to keep your smile dazzling while having the strength and durability to last for years without causing damage to your body.
Good dental care is vital to your overall well-being and general health. It is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Les Belles Dentistry pledges to support our patients in maintaining oral health and a healthy lifestyle.
