What Is Metal-Free Dentistry?
Metal-free dentistry provides strong, long-lasting alternatives for dental work without using metals such as mercury. Tooth fillings and other dental restorations traditionally used metals, which many believe to be risky for patients and their health. However, recent advancements in metal-free materials offer a safer option without compromising on durability or functionality.

What Are the Benefits of Metal-Free Dentistry
In the past, metal was the best material for dental work. However, it came with challenges like sensitivity to hot and cold, potential to change shape and risk of toxic mercury exposure. Today’s metal-free alternatives used in tooth fillings, crowns and other dental restorations eliminate these risks while using safe, effective and cosmetically appealing materials.
The biggest benefits of metal-free dentistry include:
- Strong and durable materials
- Looks more natural
- Does not stain the teeth
- No health risks due to mercury
- Less adverse biocompatibility reactions for dental patients
- Safer for dental professionals
- More environmentally friendly

Types of Metal-Free Crowns and Fillings
The professionals at Absolute Dental in Reno can help you choose which metal-free option is best for your dental needs, including:
- Composite Fillings – Commonly used in today’s dentistry, composite fillings are made of plastic and ceramic resin designed to look and feel more like a natural tooth than metal fillings. The resin offers good resistance, durability and functionality, making it an excellent option for dental work.
- Zirconia – Zirconia is an extremely hard ceramic used in dental crowns, dental implants and implant abutments. It resembles the color and shape of a natural tooth and will easily blend in with your smile.
- Porcelain Crowns – Dental crowns made entirely of porcelain can restore and strengthen a tooth after a root canal, filling or other dental procedures. It offers durable protection for the tooth.
