BPA-Free Fillings

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.


BPA-Free Fillings

If you come in for a routine visit, or even because you’ve been having tooth pain, we’ll look around for signs of decay. Decay is caused by a build-up of plaque on your teeth that bacteria feed on. As the bacteria feeds on the sugars in your mouth, they create acid which erodes your teeth. 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 safe and look natural.

Placing a filling is quick and simple. In our Houston dental office, we remove any decay that is present, fill the tooth with a tooth-colored resin, and cure the resin so it hardens into a lasting restoration. We can also use fillings to fill in cracks and chips.

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 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.

We are the only Houston dental office in our area providing BPA-free restorations!
