Metal-Free Restorations – Albuquerque, NM

Strong, Natural-Looking Smile Repair

For many years, metals like gold and silver were the most popular materials used to repair teeth. Metals are both durable and malleable. However, they come with some significant downsides, including the fact that their color clashes with that of the teeth around them. Dr. Boehmer is proud to serve as a metal-free dentist in Albuquerque. The restorations she provides can protect and restore your teeth without marring your smile’s natural beauty.

Advantages of Metal-Free Restorations

Metal-free crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays are constructed out of dental porcelain/ceramic, a strong material that closely resembles the look and feel of natural tooth enamel. It can even be shade-matched to the teeth around it so it blends in seamlessly with your smile. But a beautiful appearance is far from the only advantage that metal-free restorations offer.

The Process for Placing Metal-Free Restorations

If you need a metal-free crown or bridge, the restoration process begins when Dr. Boehmer prepares your teeth by filing away a bit of enamel. Then, she uses our advanced scanning technology to take digital impressions of your smile. That data goes to our in-house milling unit, which can create a permanent restoration right away. That’s right — you won’t have to wear a temporary crown, and you won’t have to come back for a second appointment!

Before Dr. Boehmer permanently attaches your restoration, she will make sure that it fits in comfortably with your bite and that you are happy with its appearance. After it is bonded to your tooth, you can go off and enjoy your beautiful, restored smile.
