What are the Benefits of Metal-Free Restorations?
The biggest benefit, of course, is the appearance factor. Metal-free restorations blend right in with the rest of your natural teeth, and it’s very likely that the people around you won’t realize there’s been a change. Dental ceramic even reflects light in the same way as your original enamel does!
Additionally, metal-free restorations are comfortable in the mouth and surprisingly durable. Their 100% biocompatible nature is a good fit for patients who have struggled with sensitivities or even outright allergies to common dental metals in the past
What Kinds of Metal-Free Dental Services Are Available?
- Dental crowns are a very common type of metal-free restoration that is used to restore teeth that have become structurally compromised or badly decayed. With all-ceramic dental crowns, patients won’t have to worry about a dark line forming near the gum line over time! Additionally, these crowns can also be combined into an attractive and durable dental bridge that replaces consecutive missing teeth.
- Dental inlays and onlays are a quality restorative solution for patients who have a tooth that cannot support a filling but is not quite ready for a dental crown. Inlays are designed to be placed between tooth cusps, while onlays fit over one or more cusps and can cover the side of a tooth.
- Tooth-colored fillings are a solution to cavities and an alternative to the traditional amalgam model that many adults are very familiar with. Our team will use a flexible composite resin that’s shaded to be a precise match with the enamel.
