No More Metal

Metal-Free DentistryMetal fillings were once a staple of dental care. Although they were effective in treating cavities, they also created cosmetic concerns. Many patients didn’t like the aesthetic appearance of metal in their mouth for anything other than braces. Likewise, some patients were concerned about the health effects of metal fillings because they contained mercury, which can affect the brain and kidneys. The good news is that there is now an alternative to metal restorations. Your dentist in Alpharetta can provide metal-free inlays, onlays, and fillings for your safety, comfort, and appearance.

If you have tooth decay and need a filling or other dental treatment, talk to your dentist about the possibility of avoiding metal fillings. Using high-quality porcelain, resin, ceramic, and other materials, your dentist can achieve the same results without the risks and aesthetic concerns that come with metal fillings. Cosmetic dentistry specialists can also remove old metal fillings and replace them with non-metal alternatives.
