Do you have damaged or decayed teeth? Maybe you’ve already received some metal or amalgam fillings? In the past, you may have had to settle on smile repairs that compromise your aesthetics as well as comfort in some situations. However, at Walnut Hill Dental Associates, we provide our patients with metal-free restorations in Lake Highlands. These solutions not only protect and strengthen your teeth, but they also look just like your natural smile! Keep reading to learn more about metal-free restorations and how you can benefit from them.
We have various options for metal-free restorations, including:
The type of restoration that works best for you will directly depend on the problem affecting your smile. We offer these treatments to get you back to enjoying an attractive, healthy smile:
If you have a severely decayed, broken, or weakened tooth, we may recommend a ceramic dental crown. This solution literally crowns the top of your tooth, covering the entire visible part of it. Crowns can strengthen, protect, reshape, and recolor damaged teeth for amazing function and appearance.
For smaller areas of decay like cavities, Dr. Bolouri can use tooth-colored fillings. These repairs seamlessly blend into the rest of your smile so no one will know that you’ve had cavities in the past. Plus, this will prevent pain and sensitivity caused by the decay.
Are you missing multiple teeth consecutively? Dr. Bolouri can use a dental bridge to “bridge” the gap. This custom-made prosthetic can successfully replace multiple missing teeth all at once. The best part is that it will easily blend into the rest of your smile.
If you have decay that is too large for fillings, but too small for dental crowns, inlays and onlays are often the “just right” option to get you back to eating and smiling with confidence. These are custom-made restorations that are placed in or around the top, chewing surfaces of the tooth to strengthen and protect it.
Dr. Bolouri offers metal-free dentistry because of these unique advantages:
