BPA, is short for Bisphenol, and is most commonly found in the organic compound that is used in the making of plastics. Certain recent research around BPA has had controversy as the compound does exert small, but detectable amount of hormone type properties. This has lead to many countries banning the use of BPA in food containers, especially when it comes to baby bottles.
Even though there is controversy surrounding the use of the BPA compound, it has been stated that if there is a risk, it will have a minimal affect on our health.
Is your smile holding you back? Research shows that people who smile more are more likely to be successful across many life domains than people who smile less.

BPA free fillings will give you exactly the same result as normal fillings do, functioning in the same way, but without including the BPA compound. We offer both varieties so patients do have the choice if they are worried about the effects of BPA.
While patients are rightly concerned about BPA, they shouldn’t be overly concerned. After all, BPA is everywhere in our environment. Recent studies have shown trace elements of plastic particles even in some of the supposed high-priced bottled water that we buy at the store. There is even the chance that you can be contaminated by BPA from constantly reusing and refilling plastic bottles. That’s another reason why many of our health-conscious patients are opting for safer alternatives and are seeking not only metal-free alternatives but BPA free fillings as well.
BPA free fillings are exactly the same to normal composite white fillings, with the exact same functions (and come in different shades to match your natural teeth) but are made up of a different composite which does not include the controversial BPA.
Composite fills are completed with a restorative material that contains 30-50% less resin than many other composite brands. Less resin means a reduction in the presence of trace amounts of bisphenols. The composite filling used in our dental practice does not contain any Bisphenol A or B. The composite material used by our cosmetic dental team tests high for biocompatibility among patients.
The good news is that, under normal circumstances, your body is able to excrete BPA pretty well. The bad news is that we’re each exposed to so much of it every day, we may not be able to clear it so efficiently. BPA is a fat-soluble compound and may accumulate in the fatty tissues of your body.In fact, over 90% of us contain measurable amounts of BPA.
Suffice it to say, it’s a good idea to minimize the amount we’re exposed to, including that in dental work.
Tooth-coloured restorations that are Bisphenol-A-(BPA) free would automatically exclude almost all resin composite restoratives and their corresponding bonding agents. Therefore, in this case, the choices would be limited to glass ionomer restoratives (in case of Class 3 or 5 direct restorations) or indirect restorations made with porcelain products (inlays, onlays, and crowns) and cemented with glass ionomer cements.
Material which is BPA-free can be a nano-hybrid composite. It provides exceptional strength and the low shrinkage unlike most composite materials containing BPA. Colour adaption, ease of polish and enduring shine are also hallmarks of the material.
Although there are some materials that are considered broadly biocompatible and can be safely used on the vast majority of the population, each person is unique biochemically.
At our practice, we only use safe white fillings. We want to provide you with the options to get the best filling materials available to ensure not only you get a great looking cosmetic result but also a filling that is going to be hard wearing, long lasting and works in harmony with your body.
If you think you need a BPA Free Composite White Fillings, please do not hesitate to call us today and book your appointment.
