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!

Yadkinville dentist replaces mercury in fillings, crowns with porcelain restoration

Silver fillings aren’t made from silver. Rather, they contain a combination of metals. Fillings are not the only types of restorations that can contain metal. For years, crowns have been made from base metal alloys or a combination of porcelain fused to an underlying metal.

Mercury in Dental Crowns in Yadkinville Area

You won’t find any metals in dental crowns, fillings, or other restorations at your Yadkinville dentist, Virtue Dental Care. As a holistic practice, our dental staff is equipped to place only beautiful and durable metal-free materials.

Depending on your needs, Dr. Virtue may recommend either a full-coverage crown or an onlay to replace a big, old, or worn filling or an outdated, metal-based crown. In some cases, an even more conservative procedure known as a dental inlay may be recommended to replace a silver filling. The inlay sits entirely within the cusps of the tooth. The onlay or partial crown offers greater coverage to address extensive decay or damage. It will cover the tip of at least one cusp, in addition to the shallow grooved surface of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays represent another cornerstone of a holistic practice such as Virtue Dental Care: the emphasis on conservative techniques. Dr. Virtue will recommend fillings, inlays, or partial crowns made from biocompatible materials before a full-coverage crown, if these options will work effectively to restore the look, feel, and function you expect from healthy teeth. There is no better tooth than the natural tooth. By preserving as much tooth structure as possible, you get the most natural looking and feeling tooth.

A metal-free crown may be a better option if:

  • There is a very large filling
  • Most of the tooth is decayed
  • Severe enamel erosion has occurred

These long-lasting, metal-free ways to restore your tooth can be made in a single visit at Virtue Dental Care. Dr. Virtue uses CEREC technology to design and make the tooth while you wait. You can walk into the office with a badly damaged tooth and walk out with a new restoration a short time later, a process that eliminates the need to wear a delicate temporary crown and the need to schedule multiple appointments. For an appointment, Virtue Dental Care patients call (336) 679-2034, and new Patients call (336) 606-0040.
