Why Choose Mark Gray, DDS for Metal-Free Restorations?

Restorative Dentistry That Considers Your Confidence

Walking around with a noticeable dental crown or filling can affect the way you feel about your smile – something that takes a toll on your overall quality of life. But, when you feel great about the way your teeth look, you are more likely to smile with total confidence. That just makes you feel, well, better. An all-porcelain crown, inlay, or onlay blends flawlessly with the rest of your teeth.

On the Use of Porcelain & Ceramic In Dentistry

We prefer to use dental porcelain, also known as dental ceramic, because it is a material that acts, looks, and feels just like your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain reflects light in the same way as the rest of your teeth, so there’s no significant difference in a porcelain crown or filling and the enamel around it. The only thing to consider with porcelain is that it does not stain or discolor at the same rate as your natural tooth enamel -- so keeping the surrounding teeth healthy, clean, and minimizing exposure to highly pigmented foods and beverages is important.

Here are some facts about dental porcelain:

And, did you know that with CEREC technology, Dr. Gray and Dr. Newman can plan, create, and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit to our office? We value your time as much as you do -- and that’s why we are proud to offer same day dentistry at Mark Gray DDS.

Same-Day Dentistry At Mark Gray, DDS

Using CEREC®, or chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, your dentist in Memorial can handle every step of your porcelain restoration in our state-of-the-art office. This method uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/ computer aided manufacturing) technology to increase efficiency and improve treatment planning for better results overall.

CEREC® relies on highly accurate digital impressions to create a 3D image of your mouth. With this information, the milling machine creates your restoration out of a single block of porcelain -- a material that is customized to closely match the shade of your surrounding teeth. In all, the process takes one to two hours. And when it’s all complete, you’ll walk out of our office with your newly restored mouth after just one visit.
