WHAT ARE METAL-FREE DENTAL RESTORATIONS?
For years, dentists have used traditional amalgam restorations to help patients suffering from decayed and damaged teeth. These metal-based prosthetics have certainly stood the test of time, but over the years, research has shown there are negative aspects to using gold and silver, such as staining (dark rings) and the use of mercury to create them. Their spotlight-like visibility doesn’t help either.
Fortunately, at Desert Vista Dental West, we want more for your smile, which is why we offer metal-free dental restorations. Not only are they biocompatible, but they are blended to match your smile, making it almost impossible for anyone to notice you’ve had dental work. Some of the most common restorations we offer include:
- Dental Crowns
- Inlays and Onlays
