Naples, FL Metal-Free Dentist
Metal has long held a place in dentistry because of its strength. But there’s no question that metal restorations lack aesthetic appeal, and some people are even allergic to them. Thanks to the development of newer high-strength ceramics, it’s possible to receive a beautiful, metal-free restoration without compromising on strength. At Park Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, you can go completely metal-free with our composite fillings as well as our ceramic crowns, bridges, and implants.
Instead of amalgam fillings, which are made of metals such as mercury and silver, we offer composite fillings. White in color, composite fillings blend in seamlessly with natural teeth. And as they are metal-free, they are safe for anyone with metal sensitivities.
Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges
The more prominent a restoration, the more critical its aesthetics. To protect the beauty of your smile, we offer e.max crowns, which consist of a lithium disilicate base with a porcelain veneer. The lithium disilicate — a type of ceramic — gives the crown its strength, while the porcelain gives it the translucent appearance of a natural tooth. You can learn more about our crowns by visiting our porcelain crowns page. Our metal-free bridges are made of zirconia, an exceptionally strong yet pliable ceramic. When needed, an outer layer of porcelain provides the finishing touch for a bridge no one will know is a bridge, even up close.
Dental implants are composed of an implanted fixture with an attached abutment and a crown affixed on top. Most commonly, the fixture and abutment are made of metal. But our metal-free implants use zirconia fixtures and abutments along with e.max ceramic crowns, so metal sensitivities won’t stand in your way of receiving a natural-looking replacement for a lost tooth.
