I'm looking for a dentist that uses BPA-free fillings...?


Composite dental filling material (ie tooth colored) has ingredients that are derived from BPA but does not have BPA in it. Therefore the exposure to BPA from composite is minimal.

Gold and porcelain are usually used for large restorations that require much more strength and durability.
