Restorative dentistry is the art of restoring teeth to their most natural condition. At Gilmore Dental we are a metal free restorative practice. Dr. Gilmore believes the least amount of metal in the mouth is best for patient's overall health.
From metal free fillings to metal free crowns and bridges, our restorations are made from the highest quality materials available on the market. Not only do we use the best materials, we also use the most current techniques to ensure the longest life for your restorations.
For the optimal life of a restoration, a patient must commit to having professional cleanings a minimum of two times a year (more frequently for those who have periodontal disease). This allows Dr. Gilmore to check the integrity of the restoration and allows the hygienist to clean the margins of the restorations that normal brushing misses.
An occlusal guard is extremely important in protecting restorations especially for patients who clench or grind and can add years to the life of the restoration.
