Tooth Colored Fillings
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Unlike “silver fillings” made of toxic mercury and other metals that may cause further damage to teeth and harm your health, these cosmetic fillings look extremely natural and typically require that far less of the tooth be removed.
Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
For decades the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials has been the PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer.
Now with the evolution of all-ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, dental patients have options. A metal-free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration extremely natural looking.
