While restorations are typically used to repair damage, we also take the appearance of your smile into consideration when completing restorative procedures. That’s where high-quality materials can make all the difference.
Indian Creek Dental crafts restorations from a number of varying materials that each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Gold crowns and bridges are extremely durable and do not lead to any additional wear to surrounding teeth. However, they offer the least natural appearance of all our materials. Porcelain fused to metal restorations combine the strength of gold with the cosmetic appeal of porcelain. However, the porcelain layer is worn away in time, revealing the darker color below.
Tooth-colored, all-ceramic crowns and bridges are the only solutions that ensure a completely natural-looking result. They so closely match the look of your own, healthy teeth that we sometimes use metal-free crowns as a purely cosmetic treatment to improve your smile’s appearance. Even after years of wear, metal-free crowns retain a completely natural appearance.
Dr. Hattaway has chosen to provide his patients with metal-free restorations in order to improve both your oral health and your appearance, and to offer a solution that will last for years to come.
