Rebuild Your Smile without Metal
When your teeth have suffered from decay or trauma or are misshapen or discolored, dental crowns bring back their function and strength. However, some restorations include metal, which could make your teeth appear obviously fake and feel more sensitive to hot and cold sensations. At Medina Family Dentistry, we utilize metal-free restorations, including E-max crowns, which means that your prosthetic tooth blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile for a natural look and feel. If your tooth needs some reinforcement, contact our team for an appointment. We can help you repair your damaged teeth and restore their health and beauty.
What are metal-free restorations?
No matter how extensive the damage, we have a restoration that can meet your needs and get your smile back up to par. Our metal-free restorations include the following:
- Composite resin fillings, which is a combination of fine ceramic particles and plastic.
- E-max dental crowns, which are known for their outstanding aesthetics, durability, and strength.
- Lifelike bridges.
In each of these cases, we are able to repair your tooth to the point where only you and Dr. Milewski will know which teeth are prosthetic and which are real.
Why are metal-free restorations beneficial?
In addition to having a more natural appearance, metal-free restorations have the following advantages:
- Long-lasting durability.
- No reactions for those with metal allergies or sensitivities.
- Less tooth structure needs to be removed to prepare for E-max crowns.
- Creation and placement of restorations in just one visit.
- More confidence to let your smile show.
With metal-free restorations, you don’t have to sacrifice your teeth’s function and strength in order to improve and enhance your smile’s aesthetics.
What is the process for getting metal-free restorations?
The process for getting a restoration placed may vary depending on what type you need, but some steps are similar across the board. In any case, damaged or decayed portions of your tooth need to be removed or the tooth needs to be prepared through removing some part of the enamel. For crowns or bridges, we’ll collect dental impressions so that we can design your custom restorations. Tooth-colored fillings can be applied directly to your tooth and sculpted into the desired shape in one appointment. Similarly, E-max crowns can be created and placed on the same day. Although your permanent bridge takes more time to craft, it will be well worth the wait.
Dr. Milewski and our experienced team can help ensure that your smile can last an entire lifetime and look good the whole time. Contact us to schedule your appointment today!
