Metal-Free Restorations Allow You to Smile with Confidence

We utilize metal-free dentistry techniques whenever possible at our Houston dental practice, as a metal-free restoration looks more natural and appealing than a traditional restoration with mercury fillings or metal braces. Our experienced team of dental professionals strives to provide all of our patients with beautiful smiles that they can be proud of, and metal-free dentistry allows us to craft smiles for our patients that are in many instances more brilliant than the original. A metal-free dentistry restoration may be for you if you would like to revitalize your smile, repair damaged teeth, or replace missing teeth.

CEREC®

Our Downtown Dentists are pleased to offer the exciting CEREC® service, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This technology allows us to create custom restorations in a single appointment. First, our team will treat your tooth, prepare it for the restoration, and take digital images of it. Then, we will use the CEREC® machine to custom-design and manufacture a high-quality ceramic restoration, which we will bond to your tooth. With CEREC®, dental crowns and other restorations can be completed in just one visit. This revolutionary service helps us make your dental treatment faster and more convenient than ever before.

In addition to drastically reducing treatment time and the length of the production process, CEREC® is a metal-free dentistry technique that can be used to create beautiful smiles. All-ceramic crowns look natural and are inconspicuous, which means that you can smile with confidence knowing that your teeth will look brilliant. We have seen firsthand the positive impact that CEREC® and metal-free restorations have had on our patients, and we are proud to offer metal-free dentistry treatments at our Downtown Houston practice.

Mercury-free Fillings

Conventional metal fillings contain mercury, a material that has been shown to have detrimental health effects throughout the body. In the interest of your safety, our practice offers modern dental filling materials, which are far superior to metal fillings in safety, appearance, and durability. Best of all, they match the natural color of your teeth, making your dental restoration more attractive as well.
