Benefits of a metal free dentist in Lincoln Wood


At Making Smiles Happen, we provide Lincoln Wood area patients with the option of metal free dentistry. Many patients are concerned about the strength and beauty of their smile when it is restored with treatments such as dental crowns, bridges, and fillings. Instead of using silver amalgam fillings, which may be a health risk for some patients, we use composite bonding and porcelain for our restorative solutions. This allows our patients to enjoy beautiful restorations that are just as strong and efficient as any metal treatment.

Peter W. Fry DDS feels offering metal free dentistry has a number of benefits to patients. First, it allows patients to enjoy restorations that blend in with their natural smile. Metal stands out and does not have an aesthetic advantage. Porcelain, however, which makes up many of our restorative pieces, closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel.

Second, porcelain is just as strong as metal. In addition to being beautiful, it can also function the same as any metal restoration.

Third, it preserves the health of the patient. Silver amalgam fillings are made with 50 percent mercury blended with silver, copper, and tin. Mercury can release toxins when warmed, which can enter the body and cause digestive, neurological, and cardiac problems. Nothing this toxic should be placed in the mouth, which is why Peter W. Fry DDS and his team believe in providing patients with metal free dentistry at Making Smiles Happen.

Is it time to trade out your metal crowns for beautiful, porcelain ones? Do you want your restorations to improve both the function and appearance of your smile? If you’re ready to visit a metal free dentist in the Lincoln Wood area, contact Making Smiles Happen today to schedule your initial visit and first examination to determine if metal free dentistry is right for your smile!
