In the past, most restorations from cosmetic dental clinics came in the form of metal dental crowns, usually made of gold or amalgam. These materials may present a problem for patients with specific allergies. Additionally, many people express concerns regarding other potential health issues that have been raised in recent years. Of equal concern for many Lynn Dental Care patients is the appearance of dental crowns.
Beautiful smiles have been prized throughout history, and more so in today’s society than ever before. Very few people want the look of gold crowns or silver fillings. Thankfully, advances in modern dental materials have rendered metal unnecessary for most applications. At Lynn Dental Care in Dallas, Texas, we are proud to offer a wide array of metal free, cosmetic restorations.
Cosmetic Restorations Available at Lynn Dental Care
One of the fastest, most conservative methods of restoring teeth with minor damage is dental bonding. A tooth-colored composite resin is applied directly to the tooth surface and sculpted as necessary. It can be used to repair cracked or chipped teeth, as well as filling cavities. The material can be sculpted to alter the length or shape of a tooth for aesthetic enhancement. The composite material provides a natural appearance, mimicking tooth enamel. After Dr. Lynn has finished shaping the material, he will polish and harden it for a beautiful, long-lasting restoration.
Our goal at Lynn Dental Care is preserving your oral health; however, we are mindful of aesthetics with every procedure we perform. Cosmetic fillings are colored to match your teeth for an indiscernible restoration. They are safe and longer lasting than amalgam fillings. Cosmetic fillings strengthen the tooth structure, and they can last longer than alternatives. Dr. Lynn also takes proactive measures to preserve the teeth, using a laser-assisted technology known as DIAGNOdent to detect decay early on.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
Lynn Dental Care offers porcelain crowns and offers porcelain veneers, and uses porcelain for many other dental restorations. It is considered by many to be the ideal dental material because it is hard, strong, and beautiful. The surface has opalescence and light handling properties that mimic tooth enamel very closely. Traditionally, it was considered too brittle for many applications, but today’s advanced dental porcelains have superior strength and beauty.
