It is not simply because metal-free fillings are more attractive, but these types of fillings also prevent the often experienced side effects of metal fillings like toothaches (heat and cold sensitivity) and tooth fracture. This makes it possible to preserve the remaining healthy tooth structure.
At Chester County Dentistry for Children our use of metal-free fillings is part of our commitment to provide our patients with the very latest methods and materials in pediatric dentistry and enables us to deliver a better structural and aesthetic result.
Advantages of Metal-Free Fillings….
Less sensitive to heat and cold
Stronger bonding to prevent future fractures
Less susceptibility to biting pain
No slow release of metal toxins into the body (Mercury, Silver, Copper, etc.)
