Offering Greater Protection Without the Metal

Having a damaged or decayed tooth is bad enough, but when a spotlight shines brightly on your dental work as a result, the smile you hoped to feel confident about once again just ends up hidden like before. At TruCare Dentistry, Dr. Rana helps patients to avoid this type of problem by eliminating the gleam of silver or gold and instead, replacing it with metal-free restorations. No matter if it’s a filling, crown, bridge, or any other type of repair, you can find a safe and effective solution that offers durability, longevity, and a natural-looking smile. To find out how you can trade your amalgam restoration for one that is free of metal, contact us today.

What Are Metal-Free Restorations?

Using composite resin or ceramic materials, Dr. Rana can provide metal-free restorations for patients in need of greater protection for a damaged or decayed tooth. Whether it is cracked, chipped, broken, or decayed, these useful prosthetics enable you to feel more confident about your tooth’s structural integrity as well as its overall aesthetics.

Wondering which types of restorations can be created without the use of metal? Here are just a few that will not only work to improve the health of your smile and integrity of your tooth but also blend in to create a beautiful aesthetic that is undetectable to others.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is decayed or damaged and a filling will not suffice, a ceramic dental crown can be created with the help of dental lab technicians. After cleaning out the tooth and filling it with composite resin, we will prepare your tooth and take impressions that will serve as a blueprint for your finalized prosthetic that will be matched to your natural tooth color, size, and shape. Once it is ready, we will remove the temporary we placed during your first visit and cement the permanent crown into place.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Instead of filling your tooth with silver, Dr. Rana will use composite resin that is matched to your natural tooth color. After removing decayed portions of your tooth, he will fill the area with the resin and begin to sculpt it in a way so it will lay flat. Using a special UV-light, the resin will harden to the tooth, creating a blended look.

Dental Bridges

Should you have a missing tooth that needs replacing, Dr. Rana and his team will work to create a customized prosthetic that appears seamless with the rest of your smile. Fusing three or more dental crowns together (depending on the number of consecutive teeth missing), he will prepare the two natural teeth on either side of the gap and place the bridge over your teeth, allowing the outer crowns to fit snugly over your teeth and the inner ones to sit on top of your gums, completing the look of your smile.

Inlays & Onlays

If you prefer to remove an unsightly filling, an inlay can be created using composite resin or ceramic or porcelain. These will fit inside your tooth to repair its structure. Should decay occur on a back molar, an onlay can be used to fit over the chewing surface and replace one or more of your molar’s cusps.
