At URBN Dental, we’re proud to be the only dental office in the area placing BPA-free fillings. We’ve done our research and know that using BPA in our fillings can be detrimental to our patients’ health. Since our number one priority is the health – both dental and overall – of our patients, we’ve made the decision to never use BPA in our dental fillings.
Are you ready to transform your smile?
If you come in for a routine visit, or for a dental emergency, our dentists will thoroughly evaluate for any signs of tooth decay or dental infections. Tooth decay can start when food debris, plaque, and tartar lead to bacteria to cause erosion in tooth structure leading to rotten areas on a tooth. As the bacteria feeds on the sugars in your mouth, they create acid which erodes the tooth structure. If we notice decay, we’ll want to remove it and place a filling as quickly as we can to stop the progression of the decay. Our fillings are BPA-free and tooth-colored, so they are not only safe and natural but look aesthetic too.
Placing a filling is safe, simple and quick. At URBN Dental, we remove any decay that is present, fill the tooth with a tooth-colored resin, and cure the BPA free resin so it hardens into a lasting restoration. Here at URBN Dental we use the highest quality dental products and make sure you get the best treatment possible.
IMPORTANCE OF BEING “BPA-FREE”
Bisphenol A, or BPA, is a chemical that is widely used in a variety of industries. It’s mostly found in plastics, but in most offices, even ordinary dental fillings contain BPA. Studies have shown that BPA can disrupt endocrine function, particularly the thyroid. In fact, the last few years have seen an increase in warnings against using products that contain BPA, and many products from plastic drinkware to Tupperware and beyond now feature a “BPA-free” label to let consumers know the product is safe. We take our patients’ health and safety seriously, which is why we place BPA-free fillings for our patients. Here at URBN Dental we want you safe and happy with your experience and treatment.
