What is the procedure for metal free fillings?
The procedure for metal free fillings is similar to the procedure for traditional metal fillings. First, the dentist will numb the tooth and surrounding area, then drill into the tooth to remove the decayed tissue. Next, the cavity will be thoroughly cleaned and dried before it’s filled with composite material and shaped to look and feel natural. A special light will then be applied to the tooth to quickly harden the composite material, allowing you to eat normally within a few hours.
What is the procedure for metal free crowns?
Most crown procedures take two appointments. In the first appointment, the dentist will numb the affected tooth and surrounding area, then reshape the tooth in preparation for the crown. The dentist will then take digital or physical impressions of your mouth to send to a dental lab, where your composite crown will be fabricated and customized just for you. At the next appointment, the dentist will bond the crown into place and make any adjustments necessary so it looks and feels completely natural.
