Metal-Free Dentist in Myrtle Beach, SC
Here at our practice, Dr. Maser and his team don’t just care about the health of their patient’s smiles, they also care about their patients. One thing you will notice when you walk through our office is that we take the time to be present with you and listen to your needs. We understand that every dental procedure and treatment we offer should not just preserve and protect your smile but also focus on ways to support and enhance your health. This is why Dr. Maser provides metal-free dentistry.
What is metal-free dentistry?
In the past, metal amalgam was often used for crowns, fillings, and bridges. This material was popular for restoring damaged teeth. The problem isn’t just that metal on teeth is unsightly, but it also contains mercury, which can be dangerous for your health. Nothing is more important than the health of our patients, which is why we never use metal amalgam to restore teeth.
Instead, we only use safe, effective, and durable materials such as composite resin and ceramic. Not only are they mercury-free, but they also look like real tooth enamel, so they are far and above more esthetically pleasing for our patients who need to have teeth filled or crowned. With our tooth-colored restorations, no one will even be able to tell that you had work done.
Along with mercury contamination concerns, certain patients are also more sensitive and may even have an allergy to certain metals. Fortunately, metal-free restorations are biocompatible, which means that your body treats them just like they would natural teeth, so they are completely safe. Patients do not have any issues or allergies to our metal-free alternatives.
Not to mention, metal-free dental restorations are also better for the environment. Since our office does not contain any mercury, this makes our Myrtle Beach, NC, dental practice environmentally friendly as well as smile friendly.
