Metal-Free Restorations

Ohio Cosmetic Dentistry

Fillings are a very popular solution for cavity-damaged teeth. Schindler Dentistry offers family dentistry in Ohio, including mercury-free fillings (composite fillings). These materials are white in color, and they do not contract or expand with heat. Outdated silver fillings expand and contract, which cracks teeth over time, allowing infiltration of bacteria and subsequent tooth damage.

Advantages of mercury-free fillings from Columbus, Ohio cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Sharon E. Schindler include:

  • White in color, offering a natural look

  • Modern bonding techniques allow stronger function

  • Incredibly long lasting

  • Less hot and cold sensitivity than amalgam fillings

  • Mercury-free

  • Preserves natural tooth function

  • Resilience to changes in temperature

  • Our doctor has the necessary training to place quality mercury-free fillings

Placing onlays and inlays is a minimally invasive technique that uses all-porcelain materials as an alternative to crowns.

Traditional crowns remove significant natural tooth structure while onlays and inlays preserve your tooth’s natural appearance and healthy tooth structure.

Metal-Free Porcelain Crowns

Advances in cosmetic dentistry have allowed the inception of metal-free crowns, offered by Dr. Schindler, as a better solution than traditional crowns. For years, dentists have restored tooth function with traditional crowns, which are fabricated with a base metal lining covered with porcelain. These types of crowns look unrealistic because light cannot pass through them as it would with a natural tooth. This results in a dull, chalky. and flat appearance. Also, the metal usually leaves an unhealthy dark or gray line along the gum tissue.

Ohio cosmetic dentistry, by Dr. Schindler, uses amazing technology to create your crown entirely from porcelain. All-porcelain crowns are translucent like your natural teeth and offer incredible strength and durability. Beautiful metal-free crowns from our Columbus, Ohio dental spa restore your teeth to a more beautiful and natural appearance, and to a healthier function. With metal-free crowns, your teeth can naturally flex as you chew and they can secure and strengthened your teeth.

All-porcelain crowns are an excellent choice when restoring a damaged tooth or replacing an old porcelain-fused-to-metal crown.

Metal-Free Bridges

Losing a tooth can leave an impact on your appearance, confidence, and oral health. A dental bridge from Dr. Schindler is amazing dentistry with incredible strength. A bridge can effectively fill gaps from lost teeth while restoring function and ideal looks to the smiles of Dr. Schindler’s guests.

Many people lose teeth over their lifetime because of a traumatic injury or disease. When the loss occurs, the rest of the mouth is adversely affected, resulting in shifting or bone loss. Bridges can help restore function, retain ideal tooth positioning, and return the confidence to a smile.

Bridges anchor to surrounding teeth and provide a structure-enhancing cosmetic tooth over the gap. Bridges have long been implemented in dentistry, and cosmetic advances have made realistic and strong materials available. Ohio-based Dr. Schindler believes in restoring critical function with the most durable materials while blending in with your mouth.
