For many years, metal fillings, crowns, and other restorations were the only choice people had to repair damage such as tooth decay. Thankfully, those days are over! At Bionica Dental Wellness, Dr. Holinbeck offers alternative, metal-free materials that look great and protect your oral health and overall well-being at the same time. If you think you might need fillings or dental crowns but prefer metal-free restorations, contact us today!
Any type of dental restoration, including fillings, crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays can be made with materials that don’t contain mercury or other metals. For example, fillings are made of BPA-free composite. Crowns, inlays, and onlays are made from porcelain or Zirconia.
These tooth-colored restorations are precisely matched to your existing smile so no one will know you’ve had dental work. But there are many additional benefits to consider as well!
Here are just some of the benefits these restorations provide:
At Bionica Dental Wellness, we take a holistic approach to your dental care. In addition to using materials that don’t pose any risks to your health, we also spend time thoroughly assessing your needs so we can make the absolute best recommendations.
After you’ve had an exam or consultation with Dr. Holinbeck, she’ll create a plan for your metal-free restorations that’s tailored just for you.
We want to make your experience is a positive one! We will start by numbing your tooth and making sure you feel comfortable. Then we’ll remove the decayed portion of your tooth before thoroughly cleaning and drying it. If you’re getting a composite filling, we’ll place resin material into the tooth and shape it so that it feels and looks natural. Then we’ll apply a special light that quickly hardens it.
With CEREC, we also offer same-day ceramic dental crowns that are strong, beautiful, and long-lasting. After numbing the area, we’ll re-shape your tooth to prepare it for your new crown. Next, we’ll take digital impressions and craft your crown in our office at the same appointment. Then we’ll bond it into place and make sure it feels just as great as it looks.
After taking a digital impression of your tooth we custom-make your restoration. With our same-day CEREC technology, you won’t have to come back for a second visit. We’ll simply make your ceramic restoration while you wait and place it the same day.
