Metal-Free Dental Fillings for Health and Beauty
Whiter, Brighter Smiles – In Niceville and Surrounding Areas
We refuse to use metal fillings in our patients’ fillings. Why? Because we don’t believe in taking any chances with their health.
Metal fillings are risky for a number of reasons. They are pressed and packed into the tooth, which can compromise the strength of an already weakened tooth. These metals also shift with temperature changes, expanding and contracting, just the way any metal does, which can lead to even further weakening and sensitivity.
Most troubling is the fact that silver amalgam fillings contain Mercury, an element known to cause all kinds of severe health problems.
Instead of metal, we use a variety of biocompatible materials to restore our patients’ teeth from tooth-colored composite fillings to porcelain inlays, onlays and crowns, depending on the size and location of the restoration.
Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Porcelain dental inlays and onlays are not only beautiful, they are very long lasting and actually strengthen your tooth. They can bear up to 75 percent more chewing force than teeth restored with other materials.
What our patients love best about dental inlays and onlays is that no one can see them in their smiles! They are individually created to blend perfectly with your own tooth so your smile looks naturally healthy and bright!
