If you are in need of a tooth restoration, now you are able to benefit from a natural-looking restoration with all-ceramic restorations. Using the best advancements in dentistry, your cosmetic dentist near Stillwater Ranch, Alamo Springs Dental, proudly offers patients an alternative to traditional metal restorations. Now, you will benefit from a high-quality restoration that looks natural and is customized to meet your exact specifications.
In the past, when you needed a dental restoration, they were typically made from a metal, such as gold or silver. While these forms of restorations are highly durable and offer reliable results, they are an eyesore. The dark metals tarnish the appearance of your smile, causing many to feel self-conscious about the restoration. Not to mention, over time the dark metal can cause the surrounding gum tissue to darken. Now, you no longer have to worry about a dark restoration becoming a focal point of your smile.
Over the last decade, there have been several advancements made to the types of restorative materials used, which includes the demand for biocompatible materials. Among the most preferred and widely accepted new forms of material includes ceramic. Ceramic offers an alternative to metal restorations for improved aesthetic properties while also offering an array of additional benefits.
All-ceramic restorations offer the same high-quality results needed to restore the health and function of the tooth. However, unlike traditional restorations, all-ceramic restorations offer a higher level of customization features. As a result, the restoration can be made to match the color of your natural enamel for a restoration that blends in seamlessly with your smile. In addition, the restorations offer a higher level of precision to match the exact size and shape needed to protect the tooth while increasing oral functions.
The natural-looking restoration offers aesthetic benefits both short-term and long-term. With traditional restorations, the gum line will start to recede over time. As a result, this causes the dark metal to appear, which can also occur with porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. However, with all-ceramic restorations, you will never have to worry about a dark line appearing.
When compared to traditional restorations, metal does tend to be a bit more durable. However, with the right care, all-ceramic restorations offer the same longevity and durability as traditional metal restorations. In addition, the long-term success of a restoration also depends on where the restoration was placed. For example, any restoration, no matter the material used, that has been placed on a molar, tends to have a short durability than those placed on the front teeth due to the force of chewing. To benefit from a ceramic restoration that offers the highest level of long-term success, you need a qualified dentist near Stillwater Ranch.
