Metal-Free Options for Dental Work
Feb 27, 2015 09:12AM
Dr. Roger Pint, of Bonita Dental Studio, is offering free consultations throughout the month for metal-free options for long-span dental bridges, as well as traditional crown and bridge work. In addition to being a practical solution, this option works well for cosmetic patients because it does not leave a dark rim around the gum margins, as some traditional metal crowns with a porcelain bake can.
Ceramics are typically limited to single or three-unit crowns and bridges. The high-strength, durable and metal-free ceramic zirconia—a biomaterial that’s unlike traditional ceramics that can be brittle and prone to fracturing—is available for longer-span bridges of four units and more.
