Roman Khodosh DDS, PC, Now Using Metal-Free Fillings

Share Article

Not only are metal-free fillings healthier for the teeth, but they are also fully functional.

When it comes to needing dental fillings, most people will groan with discontent at the idea of having to wear and maintain dental fillings. On top of that, metal fillings are more noticeable and do not blend in with the teeth like non-metal fillings can. Fortunately, the team at Roman Khodosh DDS, PC, provides people with metal-free fillings as an effective alternative.

Metal-free fillings are also known as composite fillings that contain a resinous mixture of plastic and other components that do not harm the body. Most metal fillings contain various metals, including mercury. With multiple health warnings about the danger of exposure to mercury in fillings, Dr. Khodosh now uses metal-free fillings. Metal fillings will slowly excrete a bit of mercury into the body over time, leading to potential health issues and risks.

“We are now using only metal free crowns and metal-free fillings. Making our patient's smiles not only healthy, which is number one, but also naturally beautiful and lasting,” Khodosh explains, adding that metal free crowns are also available. There are even more benefits to metal-free fillings that people may not be aware of.

For instance, anyone who has concerns about the process taking too long will be happy to know that the metal-free filling process is fairly quick. These dental fillings are also durable and will allow the patient to continue using the tooth when chewing. People will also only need to ensure that there is no food on the fillings when brushing the other teeth. Otherwise, maintenance is the same as with natural teeth.

The team at Roman Khodosh DDS, PC, can also color the composite filling to blend in with the shade of the surrounding teeth. Thus, you will not have a bright white filling with slightly darker teeth. With these fillings, there is no expiration date. This means that you will not have to replace the filling in a few years unless there is some type of accident or other oral health issues.

The team of professionals at Roman Khodosh DDS, PC, can even help replace metal fillings with a new metal-free one. If you are interested in learning more about metal-free fillings or dental crowns, then Roman Khodosh DDS, PC, has the treatment that you need and will want today.
