What Are Metal-Free Dental Restorations?

The term "metal-free dental restorations" might refer to one of many different dental treatments, such as:

  • Tooth-colored dental crowns
  • Virtually unnoticeable fillings
  • Flawless fixed bridges
  • Unnoticeable inlays and onlays

These restorations may be crafted from materials like ceramic, zirconia, and composite resin. Each of them is designed to perfectly mimic tooth enamel, even down to the way light bounces off of it. You can rest easy knowing your dental work will look exactly like your natural teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Metal-Free Dental Restorations?

While metal restorations have a reputation for being more durable, they can cause more damage in some cases. They require more of the original tooth structure to be removed to make room. For this and a few other reasons listed below, we recommend dental restorations without metal:

  • Natural-looking smile – These restorations are made of 100 percent tooth-colored materials, so they’re indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • Long-lasting – With proper care, metal-free restorations can last ten years or even longer. They are also much more resistant to stains than natural tooth enamel, so you won’t have to worry about discoloration.
  • Hypoallergenic – Patients with metal allergies don’t have to worry about having an adverse reaction to these restorations.

Animated dental crown being placed over a tooth

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits snugly over the top of a natural tooth to mask imperfections such as discoloration or a misshapen tooth, as well as protect a damaged tooth from further injury or decay.


Animated filling being placed in a tooth

When you hear the dreaded words “you have a cavity,” you know that a filling comes next. However, there’s no need to worry about people noticing your dental work, as Dr. Cofer and Dr. McNutt can flawlessly treat your cavity with a tooth-colored filling material.


Animated dental bridge replacing a missing tooth

If you’re missing a few teeth in a row, you might benefit from a fixed dental bridge. This restoration involves several crowns combined. They are placed on either side of the gap in your smile to literally bridge the space together.


Animated dental inlay being placed on a tooth

Sometimes a tooth is too damaged to be treated with a simple filling, but not enough for a full-fledged crown. That’s where inlays and onlays come in. They are essentially fillings that are fabricated in a dental lab and then bonded to the tooth. An inlay fits within the tiny points, or “cusps,” of a back tooth, while an onlay covers the top of one or more of these cusps.
