Treatment With Metal-Free Dentistry

May 14, 2024

We want to offer a holistic approach to dentistry, with materials that are safe for all ages. Which is why when you have a cavity, lost tooth, or dental damage, we offer help with metal-free dental work. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MN, dentist talks about lifelike and metal-free fillings, crowns, bridges, and more.

The Benefits of Holistic Materials

Our team wants to use holistic and metal-free materials, because they can bond with the tooth and offer a long-lasting and more effective treatment. These are also safe for all ages, from toddlers and kids to adults, seniors, and even those who are pregnant or have metal allergies. The lack of metal means no trace amounts of mercury. In fact, we often replace metal restorations with our holistic alternatives.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

A dental crown is needed to cap the tooth and address more advanced oral health issues. We can reshape malformed teeth, repair cracks or chips, address severe tooth decay and infection, and more. In addition, we use lifelike ceramic that can be shaded to blend with the smile and handle daily bite forces with ease. With the CEREC system, the entire process from design to placement takes only one visit, so you leave with a restored smile!

Composite Resin Fillings and Bonding

Composite resin is a material that blends acrylic-like and glass-like particles, contains no metal and bonds with the tooth structure. For a cavity, we can use the material to provide a lifelike filling that blends with the rest of the tooth. With the bonding procedure, we employ the same material to address common cosmetic concerns, offering a more attractive smile in only one visit. The placement process is fast and the results are lifelike and long-lasting.

Porcelain Bridges and Dentures

If you have minor tooth loss, such as one to three lost teeth in a row, then our team could create and secure a dental bridge, which contains new teeth with crowns on each end. These can fill the gaps in your smile and offer a lifelike appearance too, so you never hesitate to show off your smile. If your tooth loss is too severe for a dental bridge, we can use porcelain to create full and partial dentures, which look good and reflect your facial structure, so you have a comfortable-fitting and durable tooth replacement, even if you need every tooth replaced.
