White fillings for cavities, also known as “dental composite resins”, are a beautiful and safe alternative to traditional “silver” fillings. Here in Culver City, kids' dentist teams at United Dental Care knows that parents are increasingly concerned about these so-called “silver” fillings for cavities, because they contain far more mercury – a toxic heavy metal – than silver. Although the jury is still out over the long-term health impact on children and adults from these mercury fillings, some research indicates that there might be a link between heavy metals and certain childhood developmental disorders, such as autism.
Other Advantages of White Fillings for Cavities
Besides the potential health benefits of white fillings, any Culver City cosmetic dentist will tell you that white fillings simply look much better than the old-fashioned mercury fillings. The white fillings can be made to match virtually any tooth color – especially important for pre-teens and teens getting a filling for the first time who are worried about how the new filling will make their smile look. Parents looking for a Culver City children dentist will appreciate the time and consideration United Dental Care will put into a new white filling for young children, adolescents, or any member of your family.
Furthermore, many people aren't aware that white fillings are actually stronger than traditional silver fillings. If you have a qualified, competent Culver City dentist, he or she should be able to explain to you that white fillings restore most of the original strength of the tooth, make the tooth less sensitive to hot and cold, and require less removal of the original tooth.
You don’t need to worry how your smile would look like with silver fillings any more. At United Dental Care you can get white fillings and keep enjoying your smile.
