Do you have chipped, broken or otherwise damaged teeth that you would like to correct? Are you turned away by the idea of unnatural looking tooth reparation options? If so, you may be an excellent candidate for metal-free dental restorations.
Combining both cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments, metal-free restorations offer a natural and durable alternative to amalgam fillings, crowns or dentures. At Pearl White Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, we offer a variety of innovative metal-free cosmetic dentistry choices that will transform dental imperfections into beautiful, radiant smiles. Dr. Natalia Benda-Celenski has over 15 years of experience and will work with you to determine the best options and treatment plan to achieve your unique smile goals.
Metal-free restorations can address and correct several types of dental imperfections, including tooth fractures, tooth decay, spacing and cavities. While many dental procedures involve the use of the metal alloy known as amalgam, our metal-free restorative treatments are performed with dental porcelain, ceramic or zirconia. The result is a more natural looking smile.
In addition, these natural materials can also prevent adverse effects in patients that are allergic to metal alloys. Dental restorations performed with metal-free materials also have the added benefit of customization, meaning the color of the porcelain, ceramic or zirconia can be modified to match your natural teeth for seamless blending.
Some of the metal-free restoration options offered at our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentistry practice include:
Depending on the specific dental treatment you are seeking, the placement technique and procedures involving metal-free dental restorations may vary. In many cases, such as with cavity fillings, tooth chips and gap closures, the procedure can be completed in one appointment. With procedures such as crowns, inlays or onlays, a second or third visit may be required, as these types of treatments involve the creation of an artificial tooth/teeth (pontics) in a dental laboratory and the pontics will be tested at a follow-up visit to ensure a perfect fit, then placed and polished. With any type of metal-free restoration, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment in order to remove any plaque or decay.
Whether your dental concerns include getting a filling for a cavity, crown for a tooth that has been damaged or would like to improve the appearance of your smile overall, metal-free restorations can provide a safer and more natural looking choice toward attaining a healthier and more radiant smile.
Dr. Natalia is committed to ensuring you are completely satisfied with your metal-free dental restoration. During your visit, she will perform a thorough evaluation of your smile and discuss your treatment plan and options with you so you are comfortable with your decision and know exactly what to expect.
