Forget about metal fillings – tooth colored fillings are a proven way to keep your teeth dazzling and protected!
Many patients who meet with Dr. Kimberly Santiago and Dr. Jed Santiago express their concerns about metal fillings. Although metal fillings used to be state-of-the-art, they are no longer favored by modern dentists in the United States. Instead, we use metal free fillings in Issaquah, which are created from a strong composite material that bonds fast to your teeth and looks completely natural. No more metal, and all smiles!
If you have metal fillings, you know that they usually do not fit very well. In fact, metal fillings often fall out or push at the tooth surface. We see patients whose metal fillings have caused teeth to crack or break, necessitating immediate dental care.
Some scientists also question whether metal fillings can lead to allergic reactions in certain patients, or even lead to mercury toxicity. In any case, the good news is that composite materials are a safe, affordable alternative to permanently putting any kind of metal in your mouth!
Dental bonding is another service offered at Santiago Dental Wellness. It is an affordable means of improving teeth that have become discolored, chipped, crooked, cracked or decayed. Our dental professionals can apply a tooth-colored composite (the same used for natural-looking fillings) over your existing tooth. The composite can then be shaped and formed to blend with the tooth for a stronger tooth with a natural, smooth look. Dental bonding treatment produces a result that takes only one visit to complete, and can be expected to last for several years.
