Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Posted on: June 7, 2016


At Fullerton Dental Art, we provide our 92831 patients with metal-free dental restorations. We feel that this is in the best interest of our patients for several reasons. First, metal-free dental restorations look far more natural. As a Fullerton, CA dentist, our goal is to provide our patients with a dental restoration that both looks and feels natural. With restorations created using metal, the metal may eventually show through or become obvious immediately, making it apparent that you once lost your tooth or you previously had dental health issues. We can prevent this inconvenience by providing you with a metal-free fixed bridge, dental crowns, or partial dentures, among others.

Another benefit to metal-free restorations that many of our 123 patients appreciate is that there is no amalgam in the restorations we provide. Amalgam has been linked to a variety of health issues, including mercury poisoning and asthma. Evidence of this problem has been mounting for years, and many of our Fullerton patients have elected to have their old amalgam restorations replaced as a result. At Fullerton Dental Art, we can assist with this process or provide you with new metal-free restorations if this is the first time you have damaged a particular tooth. For the sake of your health, we use ceramic or resin restorations.

Learn About Our Common Procedures

Fixed Bridge. If you have lost one or several of your teeth, a fixed bridge is an excellent solution for replacing them. In this procedure, we can use your surrounding teeth as anchors to support a gum-like base. In this way, we are able to replace your teeth without oral surgery. This is done in a way that will remain securely in your mouth regardless of what you are eating or what activity you are engaged in. Our 92831 patients appreciate that our fixed bridge is made without using metal so it looks natural.

Dental Crowns. If you live in the Fullerton area and have damaged your tooth either by chipping or cracking it, you could be in need of dental crowns. We use dental crowns on a regular basis to restore teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. They are incredibly effective for doing so because dental crowns are caps that surround the visible portions of your teeth. This means that when you bite down, you will be biting down on the physical crown instead of your natural tooth. Tooth-colored dental crowns look incredibly natural, and no one will be able to tell that it is not your original tooth when looking at your smile.

Partial Dentures. At Fullerton Dental Art, we offer our patients with metal-free partial dentures for several reasons. First, they are natural-looking, but even more importantly, they are incredibly comfortable. Without metal, partial dentures are flexible, which makes them easier to wear and more comfortable to speak and eat with.
