At the Creekwood Dental Arts, we specialize in performing services for patients that make their smiles healthy and gorgeous. With new advances in dental technology and innovative treatment options, you can now explore some of the ways to improve your mouth’s health and appearance with metal-free crowns. Forget the days where getting a crown meant having a shiny piece of metal as part of your mouth. Here are the top five benefits patients get with metal-free crowns:
1. Beautiful and Natural Looking
The biggest reason why many patients love going metal-free is that it looks much more beautiful. Rather than a mouth full of metal, you get natural looking crowns that blend in with the rest of your teeth.
2. Environmentally Friendly
Did you know that the amalgam that is sometimes part of fillings is a harmful pollutant? Avoiding this material in your dental work along with mercury for crowns can help us all do more to keep the environment free of heavy metal pollution.
3. Safe for Expecting Moms
When you choose metal-free crowns, you do not have to worry about the harmful effects that mercury or other heavy metals could potentially have on an unborn child. For our patients who are expecting, this can be a welcome relief.
4. Long Lasting and Strong
Metal-free crowns are also designed to last much longer than older styles of dental fixtures. That means you do not have to worry about losing your crown in the middle of the night and exposing your damaged tooth to bacteria or potential problems.
5. Lack of Mercury
Patients also love that our metal-free crowns avoid the use of mercury. While the small amounts of mercury that have been traditionally used in dental work have not shown any harmful effects, there are some people who are extra sensitive to these metals. You can avoid the potential for problems by going metal-free.
