Biomimetic dentistry, aims to conserve as much of the tooth as possible. When replacing old fillings, fractured and decayed teeth, the biomimetic dentist aims to keep teeth strong and seal them from bacterial invasion. In dental practices around the world, Biomimetic Dentistry has eliminated cutting teeth down unnecessarily for crowns, whenever possible which may lead to destructive root canal treatments. Our restorative dentists take all the precautions to ensure the tooth is kept alive and create as little inflammation as possible during restorative treatments.
Informed individuals know that amalgam dental fillings pose unnecessary health risks due to mercury content. Our office uses a highly biocompatible all-ceramic filling material, as it contains none of the toxic monomers, generally present in most white fillings. This liquid ceramic material is strong enough even for molars, durable, and blend beautifully with the smile. But what about BPA? The team at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills offers only BPA-free fillings.
BPA and dental composite fillings
Bisphenol A is an industrial chemical contained in some epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics, such as those used for food containers, water bottles, and the lining of metal cans. Currently, there is concern that exposure to BPA can affect brain development (and thus behavior) of children, and prostate glands of male fetuses. Research also suggests a possible link to elevated blood pressure in adults. Some dental materials contain BPA, although in low concentrations. Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills does not use BPA dental fillings or BPA dental sealants. We use only BPA-free materials!
How composite all-ceramic filling material is used in our office.
We no longer use the composite resin bonding material that is plastic! Our material of choice is filled with nano-particle ceramic for light-reflecting qualities that mimic natural tooth enamel.
This pliable composite is versatile and easy to use for:
- Filling cavities. BPA-free fillings are conservative – less tooth structure must be removed, since the composite bonds into place.
- Closing gaps. Teeth on either side of the space can be reshaped with bonding material. This is a quick, one-visit procedure that usually requires no numbing.
- Bringing symmetry to the smile. Bonding is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers, to disguise enamel flaws, chips, cracks, discoloration, and minor misalignment.
Liquid ceramic fillings are just one example of our commitment to providing dentistry that is good for you. Why? Because we know that your mouth is the gateway to your health. In the Beverly Hills, CA area, call (310) 692-7855.

Been researching a place to get the Air-Flow teeth cleaning near Beverly Hills and found Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
This is the very first time i tried the air flow polishing method and found that it is 100% better and faster than traditional polishing.
My teeth felt smoother and appeared whiter. Sandra, my hygienist at the office did a fantastic job. By the way, the dental chair gives you a massage while you are getting your teeth cleaned.
The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this place!
I don't even know where to begin. This is an exceptional dental office that utilizes methods and equipment in a holistic manner that one can't find anywhere else. From the beginning, Leeshane answered all of my questions and explained the procedure from start to finish. She really eased my fears about everything which pushed me to finally schedule an appointment that I had been putting off. Not only was she professional, but also personable. I felt her positive energy as soon as she answered the phone. It was like I had known her for years! Leeshane really went above and beyond for me. Contact her for any questions or to schedule an appointment. The dentists and staff do an excellent job. I highly recommend!
The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Kanter is very knowledgeable and personable. She did a 3D scan which identified problems areas that are impossible to detect with the standard X-ray. Very happy with my visit and will be returning to the office and following up with a review post-procedure.
