Written by Dr. Grayem on Apr 13, 2021

As dental technology continues to progress, treatment becomes easier, faster, and more comfortable than ever before. In today’s article, our Saint Louis dentist is going to be walking you through the basics of high-quality, innovative restorative care. Let’s get started!

Preferred Materials

It used to be that amalgam fillings were the gold-standard material in the world of dentistry. Now, however, we have move beyond mercury to offer restorations that are completely metal-free. Both composite resin and porcelain can transform the appearance and functionality of your smile without the disadvantages associated with mercury.  

Advances in Porcelain

The porcelain that we use in modern dentistry is stronger and more durable than the porcelain of the past. How does this benefit you?  Well, the primary benefit for patients is that, because the porcelain we use is so strong, we are able to make durable, attractive restorations that are thin, and fit easily over existing tooth structure. 

Attention to Detail 

You do not and should not settle for one-size-fit-all restorations. Whether you choose composite resin or porcelain, our team will craft restorations that are customized down to the smallest detail. We will actually use your natural teeth as guides as we get started—this helps to ensure that your final restoration blend seamlessly with your smile. 

No matter what your smile looks like today, our Saint Louis dentists can help you develop and maintain a healthy smile in the years to come. Contact our team by phone or through our Contact Us page to get started!
