Are composite resins safeComposite resin is now a common dental treatment that is preferred to amalgam fillings. The composite resin has three coupling agents, an inorganic filler matrix and a resin matrix. The dental professional will recommend this kind of filling for it has aesthetic functions for the teeth, the composite resin has a tooth-colored appearance and it will make you have great confidence in your smile.

Safety of composite resin fillings

After filling replacement, a component known as BPA is released in the mouth and this is from all materials that are made of resin. The BPA is not harmful to the patients and since it is in small amounts it does not cause any harm to the teeth of patients. Our dental team will guide and teach you how to take care of the teeth after having composite fillings.


Composite resin fillings can be used effectively in any part of the mouth. Composite dental fillings don't cover the targeted area but control moisture in the entire mouth. The resin is more affordable compared to other types of fillings. They are strong and will withstand any chewing forces exerted on them. This means that the composite resin fillings are less likely to dissolve as compared to others like ceramic fillings.

Ensure that you talk to the dentist and know what kind of fillings they use so that you make a better choice on the kind of fillings you want for your teeth. We are ready to offer the best services when it comes to composite resin fillings.

We would love to help you create a treatment plan during your first consultation with us.
