Metal Free Smile Restorations in the Beachwood and Cleveland Area
What are the dangers of metal tooth restorations? Metals in the mouth mixing with saliva have an acidic pH value. This can produce voltages and cause electrolysis-related corrosion. These measurable voltages also produce electro-magnetic waves which have been found, in many studies, to interfere with normal brainwave patterns. This electromagnetic brainwave interference can cause many serious health problems including: lowered immunity, increased stress symptoms, changes in the autonomic nervous system, or in extreme cases, produce symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, or Alzheimer's disease. Making an appointment with a trusted Beachwood and Cleveland Metal Free dental office , can help you avoid the many health risks associated with metal dental restorations.
Metal Free Dentistry Options
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) Dental Crowns: the all ceramic and metal-free material used in new CEREC dental crowns have all but replaced the amalgam metal dental crowns of yesterday. You also won’t need to wear a temporary crown with CEREC restorations because CEREC crowns can be designed, fabricated, and placed in just one dentist visit.
Mercury- Free Fillings: Composite fillings cause less sensitivity to cold temperatures in foods and drinks. Because composite filling material and your tooth structure have a similar flexibility, and because the material actually bonds to your tooth, they restore the tooth’s natural strength. Instead of weakening the tooth, composite fillings give it more strength. Long term, these qualities prevent breaks and chips in teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers mask many undesirable cosmetic defects including severely stained teeth, chipped or worn teeth, teeth damaged after previous dental work, or discolored fillings in the front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or slightly misaligned teeth may also consider porcelain veneers instead of metal braces.
