Metal-Free Dental Crowns – Leawood, KS

Fixing Damaged Teeth Without Drawing Attention to Them

Many patients hear that they need a dental restoration and worry that they won’t look nearly as good as their natural teeth. Unfortunately, even with the best oral hygiene routine, thousands of Americans damage their teeth and need dental crowns. In the past, that meant drawing attention to your damaged tooth by covering it with a metal cap that stood out like a sore thumb next to all of your pearly whites. Dr. Dennis Ayer uses the latest dental technology and treatments so his patients don’t have to sacrifice their beautiful smile in order to maintain their oral health. That’s why he crafts customized metal-free dental crowns that are strong and durable.

What are Metal-Free Dental Crowns?

Over the years, teeth become worn-down, experience damage, and develop decay. When this happens, Dr. Ayer may suggest repairing the strength and function of them with a restoration. Our practice offers metal-free dental crowns that combine aesthetic with function. Each crown is precisely customized to fit over the visible portion of your damaged tooth to protect it from harmful substances in your mouth and prevent severe oral problems from developing.

Benefits of Choosing Metal-Free Over Traditional Crowns

Getting Your Metal-Free Crown

Once any oral health issues have been addressed and treated, Dr. Ayer may recommend placing a dental crown over the top of your tooth to protect it from further damage. He’ll prepare your tooth to compensate for the width and shape of the metal-free dental crown. We will take an impression of your tooth and use a special shade-chart to determine the color of your natural enamel. We’ll gather all of the information we’ve collected and send it off to our dental laboratory to have your custom restoration crafted to Dr. Ayer’s specifications.

Within a few weeks, we’ll receive your permanent crown and call you in to have it placed. We’ll remove your temporary restoration and cement the permanent one over your natural tooth. After ensuring your bite is even, we’ll polish it and send you on your way!

If you have any questions about the process or are still wondering whether traditional or metal-free crowns in Leawood are the right choice for you, contact our office!
