Why Choose Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges?

Traditionally, crowns and bridges were made with a metal alloy substructure covered up with tooth-coloured porcelains. Some crowns and bridges were made entirely from metal, for example, full gold crowns. Restorations using metals are still quite popular today, but nowadays, we are more likely to provide crowns and bridges that are entirely metal-free here at West Bowmanville Family Dental. These solutions are ideal if you would prefer a metal-free mouth and especially if you want the very best aesthetics. What are Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges Made From?

Using Dental Bonding to Refresh Your Smile

A chipped, broken or stained tooth can detract from an otherwise attractive smile. Dental bonding is a quick and non-invasive treatment, and it is quite affordable too. What is Dental Bonding? Dental bonding is a procedure to cosmetically improve the appearance of a tooth, using tooth-coloured composite resin material which is applied or bonded directly to the tooth surface before it is hardened, shaped and polished. It’s an excellent treatment for mending chips or cracks in teeth, and it can also be used to close or minimize gaps in between teeth. If you have a tooth that is too small, slightly rotated or not quite the right shape, dental bonding might be suitable for reshaping or recontouring the tooth. The composite resin material used in dental bonding is the same material used to mend small to medium-sized cavities in teeth. This material is extremely aesthetic, and West Bowmanville Family Dental…
