We offer our patients Metal Free Restorative Dentistry
Certain materials traditionally used in dentistry can lead to health problems, and it is for this reason that we offer our patients metal free dentistry, preserving the beauty of their teeth while repairing their bite.
When plaque and bacteria erode tooth enamel, they can form cavities and areas of decay in the tooth structure. Left unchecked, this can destroy the sensitive nerves and root structure of teeth. Our composite resin fillings are placed in order to stop cavities and restore the bite surface. During the procedure, the decay and only a minimal amount of the original tooth structure will be removed. Composite resin fillings appear natural and are virtually undetectable in your smile. Even if you have previously placed metal fillings, they can be removed and replaced with composite tooth-colored fillings that are beautiful and metal free. Learn about tooth colored restorations.
Unlike metal-based crowns of the past, our all-ceramic crowns are crafted using layers of porcelain that not only protect the remaining tooth structure, but look more realistic than past restorations. In much the same way that porcelain dental veneers are crafted, the porcelain is layered to create the most realistic ceramic restoration. Because of this careful process, light is able to move through the semi-translucent material in much the same way as natural teeth. Porcelain is also extremely strong and durable, and will last for years to come.
Metal-based crowns have also been known to erode along the gumline, exposing a dark line of metal at the base of the tooth. We use only metal-free crowns in our restorative dentistry procedures. Our patients often report that friends and family can’t tell their crowns from their natural teeth, and that they are confident their bite is stronger because of the porcelain crowns.

We works with majority of Dental Insurances such as Aetna, Assurant, Cigna, Delta Dental, Metlife, as well as other insurances with “out-of-network” dental benefits. For clients with such benefits, we will bill your insurance and you are responsible for co-payments and deductibles at the time of service.
The goal is to help remove financial barriers so our clients can receive the dental care they need and desire. Prior to scheduling any treatment, we are happy to provide an estimate of costs and co-payments. We are pleased to assist in maximizing your dental benefits. As a courtesy to you, we file all claim forms electronically.
Clients are asked to pay for services as they are provided. We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible financing options because we understand that monthly payments can help patients fit the costs of dental treatment into their budgets.
