Metal-Free Dental Restorations in Scottsdale, AZ
Dental restorations like crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays can become necessary for a number of reasons. You may be suffering from dental damage and decay, leaving teeth incomplete and in need of renewed structure. Misshapen teeth, severe enamel staining, and other purely aesthetic concerns can also be addressed with this kind of restorative work. Older patients may be surprised to hear this – it wasn’t too long ago that the only material available for restorations was noticeable metal alloys. Thankfully, Dr. Alex Martin is dedicated to high-quality results, and he works with excellent laboratories in-town to provide his patients with excellent, personalized restorations that are free of metals and seamlessly lifelike. Please contact our Scottsdale, AZ practice today if you have any questions for our team, or if you’re ready to schedule a consultation. Patients from Paradise Valley, AZ and surrounding areas are always welcomed.
Choosing metal-free restorations is a decision that has many long-lasting advantages, including:
- The materials are virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth enamel because of their attractive translucent quality and color. They even reflect light in the same way, allowing you to show off your newly improved smile with full confidence.
- Metal-free restorations are highly durable, and they can last for several years with the right amount of at-home oral hygiene and professional maintenance from a skilled dental team like ours.
- The tooth or teeth being restored will need to be altered only minimally to accommodate the placement of a metal-free restoration. This means that healthy dental structure is preserved and not removed unnecessarily.
- Our materials of choice for your restorations are highly biocompatible. There’s no need for patients to worry about the body rejecting it or any kind of allergic reaction – even patients who’ve experienced increased sensitivity with traditional metal restorations can enjoy these improvements comfortably!
