What Are Metal-Free Dental Restorations?
There are various methods of treatments that Dr. Weinman can use metal-free dental restorations for, including:
- Dental crowns
- Inlays or onlays
- Tooth-colored composite fillings
- Fixed bridges
Whether you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, broken, fractured, or decayed from poor oral hygiene, these custom-made restorations can be made from various materials, including zirconia, composite resin, or ceramic. Dr. Weinman uses all-ceramic restorations, which are durable, comfortable, and biocompatible.
Benefits of Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Unlike traditional amalgam restorations that can leave stains or cause more of your natural tooth to be lost, metal-free dental restorations offer patients various benefits that cannot be achieved with any other type of restorative treatment. Some of the benefits include:
- Increased confidence – With a smile that looks completely natural and feels secure, you can smile with confidence knowing your tooth is protected by a durable ceramic restoration that will keep decay and damage out.
- Readily available – Metal-free dental restorations are ideal for patients who have sensitivities or allergies to metal.
- Blended smile – Because of the all-ceramic material, the light will be reflected in the same way as your natural tooth enamel, making your restoration blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
- Versatile treatment – Patients with damaged teeth caused by injury or decay can achieve successful treatment with metal-free dental restorations. No matter if you require a dental crown, tooth-colored filling, inlay or onlay, or a fixed bridge, your smile can be restored in little time.

- The type of restoration you’ll be requiring (i.e. dental crown, bridge, inlay, onlay, filling)
- The number of metal-free restorations you’ll need to be placed
- Sedation or anesthesia
- Material used
