Tooth Colored Fillings, Crown and Bridges-Without Metal
Dr Rotem is an expert in restorative cosmetic dentistry. Fillings, crowns and bridges do not have to be made of gold or mercury amalgam. Dr Rotem has been at the forefront of restorative cosmetic dentistry since dental school. "One of my first jobs out of school was in an office that had had a mercury spill, so they didn’t use mercury amalgam anymore. In learning about the cosmetic materials, I found that they had a lot of advantages over mercury amalgam and gold. They required less invasive placement, they were more stable than amalgam, and they provided a tighter seal and they did not cause fractures since they didn’t expand with heat the way metal did. In fact, thanks to adhesive technology, they restored teeth to their strength and to a beautiful appearance. I received a lot of experience as a young dentist using these bonded restorations.” Now, with the latest generation of materials, even bridgework can beautifully mimic nature without metal. If you have cavities or worn out dental work, or if you just want to replace your existing dental work to make it look beautiful, Dr Rotem can help you with gorgeous dental restorations that defy detection.
