What Is Metal-Free Dentistry?
Metal-free dentistry provides strong, long-lasting restorations without controversial amalgams that contain metals such as mercury. Tooth fillings traditionally consisted of metal elements, which many believe could pose a health risk to patients. Recent advancements in metal-free alternatives for dental fillings and crowns offer a healthier option without compromising on durability.
Benefits of Metal-Free Dentistry
Traditionally, metal has been used in dental restorations because it is strong yet malleable enough to work within the mouth. However, it also has the potential to change shape, expand or even break when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Metal amalgams containing mercury can also be hazardous to a patient’s health.
Metal-free alternatives to dental work are gaining popularity for their effectiveness, cosmetic appeal and safety. Some benefits of metal-free dentistry include:
- Improved strength and durability
- Natural look and feel
- No risk of metal staining the teeth
- No health risks due to mercury
- Patients are less likely to have an adverse biocompatibility reaction
- Safer for dental professionals
- Less risky for the environment

Types of Metal-Free Crowns and Fillings
Our Las Vegas dentists can help you choose which metal-free option is best for you and your dental needs. These may include:
- Composite Fillings – Widely used by most dentists, composite fillings are made of plastic and ceramic resin, which is designed to look and feel more like a natural tooth than metal fillings. It offers good resistance, durability and functionality, making it an excellent option for dental patients.
- Zirconia (Zirconium Dioxide) – This incredibly hard ceramic is used in dental crowns, dental implants and implant abutments. It is also made to resemble the color of a natural tooth and will easily blend in with your smile.
- Porcelain Crowns – Dental crowns made entirely of porcelain are used to restore and strengthen a tooth after a root canal or other dental procedures. It offers protection for the tooth with natural shape and color.
- Restoration of Cracked and Chipped Teeth – Composite resin can be used to repair cracked or chipped teeth without using metal. It can match the color of your tooth for a bright and more confident smile.

Metal Alternative Dentistry - FAQs
Generally, anyone can benefit from metal-free tooth fillings, metal-free crowns and other metal-free restorations. If you need dental work but don’t want noticeable amalgam fillings or unsightly metal crowns, our dental professionals can discuss the best non-metal options for you.
Dental amalgam is a stable alloy consisting of several metals, including silver, tin, copper and mercury. There is some concern about the use of mercury because it can be dangerous if it gets into the bloodstream. It can also be hazardous to the environment if not used or disposed of correctly. This has prompted the development of metal-free alternatives for dental work.
Yes! You can replace metal fillings with composite fillings for a more natural look and comparable durability and functionality. You don’t have to worry about noticeable metal in your mouth with non-metal tooth fillings. If you have a damaged amalgam filling, our Las Vegas dentists can repair the tooth with a metal-free option. Contact the Absolute Dental team to learn more.
Metal-free crowns can last a long time. However, it depends on several factors, including a patient’s oral hygiene and care. If patients practice good dental habits, avoid eating unnecessarily hard foods and visit their dentist regularly, a mental-free crown can last decades before needing to be repaired or replaced.
Tooth fillings made of composite material resemble the color of a natural tooth, so it easily blends in with the rest of your mouth. Porcelain or zirconia dental crowns are also natural-looking and can match the color of your other teeth for a bright and confident smile.
