If you are one of the millions of patients with multiple metal (amalgam) dental fillings, you could be putting your dental and overall health at risk. While metal fillings were once the only choice for dental fillings, new tooth colored fillings are fast becoming the more popular restoration method. That’s because tooth colored fillings are more naturally looking and are better able to protect your long term health. For the modern dental restorations you deserve, make an appointment to replace your old metal fillings with new tooth colored fillings from Juno Beach Smiles today. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley can help you protect your long-term health and wellbeing. Juno Beach Smiles is the trusted restorative dentistry for patients throughout Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach, and the surrounding communities.

How Are Tooth Colored Fillings Made?

Tooth colored fillings are made from a composite of tooth-colored plastic and glass.

Why Replace Old Metal (Amalgam) Fillings with New Tooth Colored Fillings?

  • Health Dangers: Metal fillings are made of about 50% mercury. Mercury is a dangerous neuro-toxin. Symptoms associated with prolonged mercury exposure include: memory loss, auto immune disorders, fatigue, tremors, and cognitive impairment.
  • Cracking and Sensitivity: Aged metal fillings can crack and partly detach causing sensitivity or pain where cracks are deep. Cracking close to tooth nerves can be particularly discomforting.
  • Bite Force: With tooth colored fillings, your bite force when chewing is distributed more evenly across the tooth structure, which reduces the likelihood of tooth cracking.
  • Preventive Care: Tooth colored fillings allow Dr. Keuning to see underlying tooth decay more readily because of visible staining around the edges of the filling. With metal fillings, tarnish and corrosion make it much more difficult to identify new decay.

What are Amalgam Fillings and What Should I Know About Them?

June 10, 2014

At Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry in Juno Beach, FL, Dr. Greg K. Riley and Dr. Duane E. Keuning provide patients with not only the most advanced restorative dentistry options available, but also with advice, information, and insight regarding the treatments we plan for each of our patients.

Amalgam Fillings Vs. Composite Fillings

Amalgam fillings are composed of a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, and copper. The alloy is placed within the prepared cavity of a decayed tooth to prevent further decay. Because of its composition, an amalgam filling is susceptible to microscopic changes in size and shape when exposed to extreme hot or cold. This may result in tiny fissures in the tooth over time, thereby compromising the structural stability of the tooth as a whole.

Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are made of a composite resin that closely matches the shade of the tooth it fills. The majority of dentists agree that composite fillings are the preferred restorative option. In addition to the fact that they are more aesthetically agreeable, composite fillings stand up to changes in temperature better than amalgams. As with any of our procedures and treatments, our doctors are happy to explain the entire process before your fillings are placed, as well as the pros and cons of each type. We’re here to help you understand your dental care and to assist in your journey toward optimal oral health.
