Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

At Virtue Dental care near Greensboro, NC, provide biocompatible restorative dentistry that uses safe materials to ensure dental treatments do not compromise physical or oral health.

“friendly” dental fillings

We practice metal-free dentistry, and we rely on porcelain and composite resin when it comes to restorations such as fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. Our goal is to always protect our patients’ health every time we place a filling or repair a broken tooth.

Notably, these fillings are tooth-colored which allows them to blend in with the teeth. Composite resin fillings are conservative, because they do not require much removal of natural tooth structure.

CEREC Crowns

As we said before, porcelain is a great metal-free alternative that we often use in restorative dentistry. Porcelain is a biocompatible material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel. It is also extremely durable and resists stains.

CEREC technology allows us to offer patients one-visit crowns. In a single office visit, we can take impressions, fabricate the porcelain crown, and permanently place it. Some of the biggest advantages to CEREC crowns in a day vs. traditional crowns include:

  • Porcelain is biocompatible and natural looking
  • No need for a temporary crown
  • No need to return for multiple appointments
  • Sophisticated technology facilitates higher levels of precision and accuracy during fabrication

The use of CAD/CAM technology allows us to take precise digital impressions of the teeth, which are then sent to the milling machine that turns a pre-chosen block of porcelain into your final crown. The precise computer technology ensures the final product will have a great fit for proper functionality and aesthetics.

Fixed Dental Bridges

Missing teeth pose a risk to oral health and should be addressed as soon as possible. Lost teeth can be one of the factors that leads to the development of gum disease. Patients with gum disease can also be at an increased risk of other health issues such as diabetes, stroke, or heart disease. When working with our patients to develop a treatment plan for missing teeth, we may recommend fixed dental bridges made from biocompatible materials.

A dental bridge is made of several artificial teeth that are held in place by dental crowns on both ends of the gap. Dental bridges are an affordable restoration that provide patients with improved stability, durability, and aesthetics.
