Metal Free Dentistry

Metal free dentistry can improve your general health.

Metal free dentistry ensures our patients are safe

At Millennium Dental Mosman in Mosman we are a metal free and patient friendly dental practice. We use metal free restorations to attain the best aesthetic and functional results for our patients. They also ensure their personal safety is protected by eliminating the possibility of traces of mercury entering the body which can occur with amalgam fillings.

Composite Bonding Procedures

As an alternative to amalgam fillings, composites are especially suited for smaller restorations. This substance may, when bonded to the tooth, actually help to prevent fracture. This “tooth coloured” or white material is cosmetically superior to amalgam and can last for a longer period of time if cared for correctly by adhering to your general hygiene regime.

Composite Resin Bonding

When a small amount of tooth structure needs to be repaired, composite resin bonding provides on the spot treatment. Bonding is usually painless (generally no anaesthetic is needed), immediate (usually only one visit is required) and less expensive than crowning or capping.

Porcelain Inlays

In the case of larger restorations, the best long term result may be obtained by placing a porcelain inlay on the tooth. The function of this restoration from a “biting” and a cosmetic standpoint is far superior to a composite filling. This option has an average life expectancy of 20 years depending on a number of factors including how diligently you care for your smile and other dental habits such as bruxism.

Why replace amalgam fillings?

Amalgam fillings are outdated technology which have actually been used for centuries. There are many problems with this metal alloy, including its habit to expand and shrink with varying temperature. This can put unnecessary pressure on your tooth structure and actually cause it to fracture over time. Amalgam also has traces of mercury which is why most healthcare professionals will recommend replacing it with a composite material.

Individuals with amalgam fillings also experience self-consciousness due to flashes of silver which can be seen when they smile. If you dislike the appearance of your amalgam/silver fillings and want a fully white smile please contact Millennium Dental Mosman.

Elongate the lifespan of your composite restoration or inlays

You can ensure any dental prosthetic or fixture lasts as long as possible by following a general hygiene regime. The team at Millennium Dental Mosman will guide you through the optimum dental hygiene regime for you and recommend any special requirements or equipment you may need. Generally you will simply have to brush twice a day and floss before bed to ensure your restorations last for as long as possible. The average expectancy for a composite restoration is ten years if cared for correctly.
