Dental Restorations Q & A

What are dental restorations?

Dental restorations are oral prosthetics that your dentist uses to address damaged or decaying teeth. Once placed, restorations return your teeth to their original strength, size, shape, and aesthetic appearance. 

Common examples of dental restorations include dental crowns and fillings, dental bridges, dental implants, and veneers. As holistic dentists, the team at Jack E. Ferguson, DDS, LLC only uses all-natural, biocompatible restorations, ensuring patient safety and comfort. 

What types of dental restorations do you offer?

The team at Jack E. Ferguson, DDS, LLC offers a variety of dental restorations, including:

Biocompatible fillings

Biocompatible fillings use a composite resin that’s free of metal amalgam and industrial chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol B (BPB). Biocompatible fillings mimic the color and light-reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel and are just as durable as traditional fillings.

Metal-free crowns

If you crack or chip a tooth, or a tooth develops deep decay, your dentist might recommend a metal-free crown. A metal-free crown is a tooth-shaped cap that protects your tooth from further damage, allowing you to chew and bite comfortably.

Zirconia implants

If you’re missing one or multiple permanent teeth, your dentist might recommend zirconia implants. Zirconia is a type of ceramic that’s biocompatible. Unlike traditional titanium implants, zirconia doesn’t corrode or degrade over time.

Metal-free partials

If you’re missing only one tooth, but your surrounding teeth are healthy, your dentist might recommend a metal-free partial. Metal-free partials are similar to traditional partial dentures, in that they’re removable. However, instead of using a metal bar for support, they feature a flexible base. 

What type of dental restorations will I most benefit from?

To determine the type of dental restorations you’ll most benefit from, make an appointment with the team at Jack E. Ferguson, DDS, LLC. Following a discussion of your goals for treatment and a thorough oral exam, your dentist can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs and health history. 

Non-metal and chemical-free restorations present a lower risk of side effects and complications. However, they’re just as safe and durable as traditional restorations.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth or smile, dental restorations are worth considering. Make an appointment at Jack E. Ferguson, DDS, LLC today by calling the office.
