Woodcreek Family Dental strives to improve the health and appearance of our patients’ smiles using preferred solutions in dentistry. We offer metal-free restorations in Murphy to enhance the health, function, and aesthetics of your teeth. Besides providing more attractive results, the restorations are also biocompatible for your safety and peace of mind. We can save your damaged tooth and recreate a flawless smile using metal-free treatments.
Metal has held a commonplace in dentistry for several decades because it creates strong, affordable restorations. Although they are effective, they are highly noticeable and are not biocompatible. Now, you can enjoy treatments that use ceramic, zirconia, or composite resin instead of metals when needing:
Each metal-free option seamlessly mimics the natural appearance of your smile while repairing your compromised tooth. You can rest assured, no one will ever tell your restoration is not a real tooth.
Although tooth-colored restorations are not made from metal, that does not mean they are not as durable or do not offer the same benefits. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Metal-free restorations provide an array of advantages, including:
When choosing metal-free restorations, your treatment process will vary slightly depending on the type you choose. Your cosmetic dentist in Murphy creates the customized treatment plan you need to restore a healthy, beautiful smile.
Your tooth is cleaned, and a weak acid is applied to it to open the pores in your enamel and dentin. Your tooth is rinsed before the composite resin material is applied to it. The resin is customized to match the color of your enamel and sculpted into the ideal shape. A special light quickly hardens it to leave you with a flawless smile.
Your tooth is prepared and shaped before your dentist takes an impression of your tooth. This is needed to create your restoration to meet your size and shape needs in a dental lab. The lab carefully crafts it to match the color of your natural tooth, which can take a couple of weeks. We attach a temporary crown in the meantime. After your restoration is sent back to our office, you return for a second appointment to have it bonded in place.
Do not let a metal restoration cause an eyesore when you smile. Choose a natural-looking solution. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.
