Is a decayed, cracked, or otherwise compromised tooth in desperate need of repair? Decades prior, dental concerns like these required obvious, metal restorations. However, patients today can opt for tooth-colored alternatives that are effective, long-lasting, and allow you discreetly get the treatment you need! So, if your smile requires dental work, contact our office today and ask about metal-free restorations in Towson.
Metal-free restorations are where cosmetic and restorative dentistry intersect. The high-quality materials (like ceramic and composite resin) are custom-made to mimic every aspect of enamel, including how light bounces off of it (which is the secret to its natural-looking appearance!). Below are a few metal-free options that can rebuild the structure of your tooth without calling attention to your treatment:
While metal options continue to be an effective solution to damaged teeth, they do remove more of the tooth’s structure in the process and leave behind dark spots that often make patients feel self-conscious when they smile or laugh. For these reasons, as well as the ones listed below, we recommend metal-free restorations:
Although each smile is unique, Dr. Devon Conklin, Dr. Charlie Ward, and Dr. Melody Ward’s goals are the same at each appointment: create personalized treatment plans that result in a healthy, strong, aesthetically pleasing smile. After conducting a thorough examination, they will recommend a filling, crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay to restore the shape and function of each affected tooth. From there, they will treat the cavity by removing the decay and adhering the metal-free restoration to your tooth. Once you’re done in the treatment chair, even you will have a hard time noticing the difference!
If your mild toothache has become a sharp, stabbing pain or you have a sneaking suspicion you need dental work, then contact our office today to schedule an appointment with our dentist in Towson!
