Ceramic fillings, also known as porcelain/composite fillings, are made of advanced materials that have been proven to outperform amalgam but without the toxic characteristics of the mercury alloy.
Additional Benefits of Ceramic Fillings are:
1) Better Color Match
Ceramic fillings are designed to more closely match the natural color of your teeth.
Ceramic fillings are less likely to cause an allergic reaction in your body compared to metals such as gold, silver, and BPA containing composite resins (biocompatibility testing is available to confirm this).
Ceramic fillings are more durable and resistant to abrasion.
Ceramic fillings create a better bond with your teeth and are less likely to develop micro cracks and fissures that essentially provide a "highway" for bacteria and other organisms to travel down into the cavity, and wreak havoc.
At Phoenix Biological Dentistry, we use only the most biocompatible, least toxic, BPA free ceramic material to restore your beautiful smile!
