Gold Fillings in Boca Raton, FL
If you have cavities due to tooth decay, dental fillings are the best way to preserve the natural tooth. There are several different types of dental filling materials that can be used, including gold, porcelain fillings, silver amalgam fillings, and composite resin fillings. We believe that gold fillings are the “gold standard” of dentistry when it comes to dental restorations.
Gold dental fillings are dental restorations made of a gold alloy metal. Gold fillings have been used in aesthetic dentistry for decades because the material is long-lasting, highly resistant to corrosion, and incredibly strong. As a result, gold fillings offer optimal durability for molars and pre-molars that experience heavy wear from chewing and biting.
Types of Gold Fillings
There are two basic types of gold fillings:
Advantages of Gold Fillings
Silver Amalgam Fillings: The Dangers of Mercury
Silver fillings contain mercury, which is a neurotoxin that can impair cells and organs in the human body, particularly the brain and kidneys. Silver fillings contain additional metals, such as copper and zinc, which may produce an allergic reaction. Even low levels of exposure to mercury can lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea; long-term exposure can cause more serious health problems including respiratory illnesses, reproductive system damage in men, immunodeficiency diseases, increased susceptibility to infections, and kidney damage.
Gold fillings are much less likely to cause harm to your teeth compared to silver amalgam fillings. Gold carries fewer risks for allergic reactions and is less likely than other metals to produce skin problems or immune reactions. As a result, gold fillings can last many years with the proper care and maintenance. In addition, gold is resistant to heat and chemical reactions that may otherwise damage your teeth over time.
The "Gold Standard"
Our number one priority is preserving the health of your natural teeth whenever possible. At Dental Care of Boca Raton, we stand behind the quality and durability of gold fillings to fill cavities and preserve your teeth.
Gold is the premier material for dental inlays and onlays. It’s biocompatible with the soft tissue of the mouth, and it isn’t prone to oxidation, staining, shrinkage, leakage, or plaque accumulation. For cosmetic purposes, we can combine gold fillings with a white tooth-colored filling.
Not only do gold fillings offer strength and stability, they last a lifetime. That’s why we feel confident in backing these restorations with a lifetime warranty.
