FAQs

Metal-free fillings are made from non-metal components, usually composite resin. The composite resin material will be color-matched to the surrounding teeth, ensuring that it looks like your natural teeth. It is one of the safest materials for restoring or repairing damaged teeth since it combines plastic (acrylic) resin with powdered glass filler.

There are many benefits of metal-free fillings, some of them include:

Natural looking and indistinguishable from your teeth

Color and shade are matched according to your teeth

Requires the removal of a minimal amount of natural tooth structure

Safe, in-office procedure

No pain or discomfort

Extremely safe and durable

No mercury, like metallic fillings

Harden very quickly after being placed

Strengthen the cured tooth

You should consult your dentist to determine whether metal-free fillings are right for you. White fillings are generally suitable for those with minor tooth decay or who wish to replace an existing metallic filling. The best way to brighten your smile is to replace your old amalgam fillings with new resin fillings.

Metal-free fillings are strong, solid, and durable. Compared to years ago, composite materials today are much stronger. This procedure fills cavities, prevents tooth decay, and reinforces the teeth’s natural structure at the same time.

A composite filling bonds to a tooth and requires fewer tooth extractions than a metal filling.
