We never use metal or amalgam fillings or crowns to repair dental damage as we know the mercury levels in such fillings are harmful to your health and expose you to unnecessary risks. Therefore we are trained to safely remove the harmful fillings and replace them with BPA-free and fluoride-free composite or porcelain alternatives which are much safer for your teeth and overall health.
There may be times in which a tooth requires more extensive repair than a filling. Porcelain inlays, onlays, and custom-fitted full-coverage crowns are a more permanent solution that will be beneficial for the weakened tooth.
Dental crowns can also be a solution for dental implant treatment completion, which ensures your smile is brought back to the most natural look. Other times crowns are used to fix small cosmetic problems regarding the shading, shape, or size of the teeth.
