What Are The Different Types Of Metal-Free Dentistry?
The Absolute Dental in Minden, Nevada can assist you with finding the right material for whatever dental procedure you need to have. The following are great options for metal-free dentistry:
Unlike metal fillings, composite fillings can be matched to your teeth. Composite is usually made from resin and can be used for restorative procedures that fix the appearance of teeth that have been chipped as well.
Dental crowns made of either all porcelain or a mixture of porcelain and resin can be a great option for metal-free dental crowns as they are long-lasting, can be matched to the color of your existing teeth, and they resist staining. Crown porcelain ceramic also allows for a natural look while being stronger than resin, making it the preferred material for dental crowns.
Zirconia (Zirconium Dioxide)
Zirconia is used as an alternative to metal in procedures such as dental crowns and metal-free dental implants. Zirconia and ceramic tend to be the better option for restorations due to their “biocompatibility.” Plus, a zirconia crown is easier to match to the rest of your teeth.
