Our practice follows metal-free dental restorative procedures and protocols.
We do not place Amalgam fillings and we advocate and advise our patients to become metal-free.
When we remove Amalgam fillings we follow these strict protocols: -
- Minimal drilling to loosen “blocks” of amalgam and Ultrasonic scaling to vibrate pieces loose.
- All the above is done under maximum water cooling, high volume suction and rubberdam protection.
We advocate the use of composite restorative materials for smaller restorative procedures. Cerec®” ceramic cad/cam technology in all our restorative procedures that include inlays, onlays, crowns and implant-supported crowns.
Through this technology most restorations can be completed in a single visit without the need for impressions or temporization.
