Composite Resin Fillings are the standard filling used by the dentists of Bethlhem Dental Centre, offering a much healthier and more attractive alternative to the dated amalgam fillings still seen in Tauranga.
Composite Resin Fillings are made of a specially formulated and long-lasting dental resin, while older amalgam fillings were often made of a combination of mercury, silver, tin and copper, a mix that is now considered to be unsafe for the patient over the long-term. The dated amalgam fillings are still common in Tauranga, as some dentist have only recently switched to composite resin fillings.
The dentists of Bethlehem Dental Centre prefer to use composite resin fillings not only due to the reduced health risks of the newer technology, but also because these modern fillings look natural, without the startling black of old-fashioned amalgams.
The expert dentists at Bethlehem Dental Centre pride themselves on making the entire procedure of getting fillings as comfortable as possible for the patient, while attaining the best possible results. In fact, the processes of fitting fillings is so smooth that most patients are able to return to work in Tauranga straight after their appointment, with minimal interruption to their day.
As part of the regular dental maintenance services of Bethlehem Dental Centre our dentists can monitor the development of any oral health problems, and can notify patients as soon as the need for fillings arise, catching the problem early and minimizing costs and inconvenience.
Many patients still shy away from booking an appointment to get fillings, remembering the painful experiences they had in the past, either at another dentists in Tauranga or with their school nurse. However, by using the latest in modern technology the dentist at Bethlehem Dental Centre can take all steps necessary to minimize pain and discomfort.
