The aesthetic choice for restoration

One of the biggest advantages of using metal-free dentistry is the natural and aesthetic finish that can be achieved. Metal dentistry will be obvious and visible, and many patients will wish to conceal their restoration work. If you have aging amalgam fillings that you wish to conceal, we can replace these with a composite resin filling.

Our service also includes metal free restoration for bridge work, implants, crowns, veneers, and even orthodontics. Some dental work is unavoidable, but we believe that it should also be invisible. By using materials like zirconia, porcelain, and composite resin, we can achieve natural-looking and beautiful restorations that only you know about.

How safe is amalgam?

The FDA has found no reason to eliminate the use of amalgam materials in dentistry. Amalgam fillings contain a blend of metal alloys, including silver, copper, tin, and mercury. Mercury has been an important material in dental restorations for the past 150 years. But today, patients are looking for a more holistic approach to dentistry.

While strong and durable, there are alternatives to amalgam cavity fillings that do not contain any mercury. By choosing tooth-colored composite filling material, you can also achieve a more aesthetic result. We choose to use materials that are more biocompatible with the body to reduce the risk of an adverse reaction. We also look for materials that will not damage the surrounding structures.

FAQ About Metal Free Dentistry

Many dental implants contain a titanium core which is placed in your jaw bone and bonds with the bone. We use a zirconia implant, which is incredibly strong and durable. It provides a strong anchor for your restoration. Zirconia implants are one of the most successful medical devices available, with a long-term success rate of between 94-97%.

There is a risk of sensitivity to the metals found in many dental restorations. Although the risk is low, some people will prefer to eliminate the risk of an adverse reaction or sensitivity by opting for a metal-free restoration.

Zirconia is a very strong and durable material, making it an ideal material for dental restoration. A zirconia crown can last a lifetime if cared for correctly. You will need to brush and floss daily, paying attention to the bond. If you notice your zirconia crown feels loose, you should visit our Beverly Hills dental office as soon as possible to have the dental cement bond checked

No, this is why it is worth shopping around for the right dental practice. While some dentists might quote very cheap prices at the start, there will often be hidden extras further down the line which will be required to continue treatment. A very low priced dentist may also indicate the use of cheaper materials or inexperience. When choosing your dental practice, look for reviews, recommendations, and book an introductory appointment before going forward with treatment.

Although metal free restorations are durable and long-lasting, they are not permanent, much like your natural teeth. They will need to be carefully cared for by brushing and flossing daily. You should also commit to regular dental checkups and professional cleaning to help maintain your restoration. With good care, your restoration could last decades, but these are not an alternative to good oral hygiene.
