As part of our commitment to your oral health, our practice offers metal-free dentistry as an alternative to many traditional treatments. Many common restorative treatments involve metal, such as fillings, crowns and bridges. When you visit our office, you can be certain that we use nonmetallic, biocompatible materials when providing your treatments. For example, we provide tooth-colored fillings and crowns and bridges made from porcelain, ceramic or other tooth-colored materials.
In addition to providing you with a natural-looking end result, tooth-colored materials are also healthier overall, eliminating the health risks presented by metals in the mouth and minimizing your sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Composite dental fillings go a step further, helping to stabilize and strengthen your damaged tooth and tooth structure.
We also offer services such as amalgam removal to remove existing metal from your mouth and replace it with a metal-free alternative. If you have silver fillings that you feel are unsightly to your smile, our dentist will happily consult with you to determine if they should be removed.
If you have questions and concerns about the side effects and health risks of certain metals, we welcome you to contact our office and ask us about metal-free dentistry. We will be happy to provide you with additional information and help you schedule your appointment with our dentist.
