Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Dark metal fillings can really detract from the beauty of a person’s smile, and can add years to that person’s appearance. These days, most of our patients in Manhattan opt to have their teeth filled with white fillings, but many patients don’t realize that Dr. Beshar can also replace their old metal fillings with new, white ones. With tooth-colored fillings, our smile makeover patients can enjoy smiles that are bright, white, and healthy.
Not only are tooth-colored fillings more aesthetically pleasing than metal fillings, but there are also some potential health risks associated with metal fillings that patients should be aware of. Traditional metal fillings have about 50 percent mercury content, and many experts believe that small amounts of this metal (which can leak lead, cadmium, and arsenic) can enter a person’s bloodstream. This could lead to a variety of serious health issues, including mental disorders, birth defects, and neurodegenerative diseases. The debate on the safety of metal fillings is ongoing, but many of our Manhattan patients opt to play it safe by replacing old metal fillings with new, tooth-colored white fillings.
