Tooth restorations can enhance the beauty of the smile. They can brighten a dull smile or restore missing teeth. However, one of the most important features of tooth restorations is their dental materials. Many patients near Social Circle seek a holistic dentist who uses mercury-free dental materials. They will find well-respected and well-known dentist Dr. Jones in Social Circle at Brookstone Place.
Composite resin fillings add natural beauty to the smile. There are many metal-free restorations in dentistry today. They include composite resin and porcelain. It is important to understand how each dental material is used and how it adds natural beauty to the smile. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material used for dental fillings. It is safer and more effective than amalgam fillings composed of about half mercury and other metals. Since amalgam can pose danger to patients and the environment, Dr. Jones has chosen to keep it out of his office. He also practices mercury safe dentistry and can remove and safely dispose of amalgam fillings upon request. In doing so, he follows strict protocol set forth by the International Academy of Medicine and Toxicology.
Porcelain tooth restorations prove to be strong and durable. Another metal-free dental material is porcelain, which is widely used by dentists. The material is strong and durable. Although it is stain resistant, it is important to maintain your oral health to avoid tooth decay and gum disease. A porcelain tooth restoration can last up to a decade when there are excellent oral hygiene habits including brushing at least twice a day, flossing before bedtime, and visiting Dr. Jones at least biannually. Porcelain tooth restorations at Dr. Jones' office include dental crowns and veneers. Dental crowns are placed over weak teeth to protect them. They are used in dental bridges and dental implant treatments. Veneers are wafer-thin shells that cosmetically enhance the smile. They can provide the appearance of straight teeth or fill spaces between teeth. Porcelain tooth restorations blend nicely with the natural teeth.
