Dear Esteemed Patients,

I trust this letter finds you in the best of health and spirits. At the Vartanian Dental Group of Mission Viejo, we are committed to providing you with the highest standard of dental care, and it is our pleasure to serve you.

As we continuously strive to offer advancements in dental technology and procedures, I would like to take a moment to discuss the potential benefits of considering a transition from traditional metal fillings to modern white fillings, also known as composite fillings.

While metal fillings have been a reliable and durable solution for many years, advances in dental materials have introduced an aesthetically pleasing and functionally superior alternative – white fillings. The benefits of transitioning to white fillings are manifold, and I would like to highlight a few key advantages:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: White fillings are crafted to match the natural color of your teeth, providing a seamless and more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This is particularly beneficial for visible teeth, ensuring a more natural smile.
  2. Preservation of Tooth Structure: Unlike metal fillings, which require the removal of healthy tooth structure for placement, white fillings bond directly to the tooth, preserving more of its natural integrity. This can contribute to long-term dental health.
  3. Versatility: White fillings are versatile and can be used for both front and back teeth. Their adaptability makes them an excellent choice for various dental applications.
  4. Reduced Sensitivity: Metal fillings can sometimes cause increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. White fillings, on the other hand, create a more natural thermal environment within the tooth, minimizing sensitivity.
  5. Mercury-Free: White fillings are mercury-free, addressing concerns associated with traditional metal amalgam fillings. This is particularly relevant for patients who prioritize metal-free dental solutions.

As your trusted dental care provider, our goal is to ensure that you are well-informed about the options available to you. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of transitioning to white fillings or have any questions, please feel free to schedule a consultation with our experienced team. We are here to address your concerns and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and preferences.

Thank you for entrusting us with your dental care. It is our privilege to serve you, and we look forward to supporting you in achieving optimal oral health and a radiant smile.

Best regards,

Dr. James Vartanian
