Biocompatible Cavity Fillings

Achieve Overall Wellness with Biocompatible Dentistry in Honolulu
In the past few years, there has been a growing concern for the potential health hazards imposed by the use of dental materials that include toxic compounds. The most common source of concern has been the mercury found in silver fillings. Mercury is one of the most toxic metals found in nature and is a major component of silver amalgam fillings.

At Landmark Dental we believe this outdated material could affect one’s overall health. Amalgam fillings are removed safely with the correct precautions and equipment used. Newer, more advanced tooth colored materials that are bio-compatible for your over-all health are used to replace mercury amalgams.

In addition to concerns of Biocompatibility, when choosing a restoration, we have to consider the size of the defect that is being repaired, the function of the tooth, and the biting surface involved. Strength, durability, and cosmetic acceptability are all considerations when choosing a restorative material.

At Landmark Dental we use the CEREC one-visit method to restore the tooth with tooth colored porcelain once the mercury amalgam is removed. This method of restoration is quick and comfortable. The patient will be fitted with a permanent crown during that same visit.

COMPOSITE FILLINGS: 
Composites are a tooth colored material that bonds strongly to the tooth structure and is resistant to wear. The use of these materials is restricted to smaller type fillings and areas, not under heavy chewing pressure.
