Our Approach To Brighter Smiles In Raleigh

Mercury Free Fillings

Dr. Russo suggests a different approach to mercury fillings.  Not only are they an old practice but mercury is banned from use in everyday products such as lightbulbs and unsafe to be disposed of in landfills.  So why would this be ok for your teeth?

At Dr. Russo we use highly aesthetic tooth-colored composite fillings that will not only rid your mouth of mercury-based dental materials but can make your smile look more natural and brighter! We can safely remove your old mercury-silver fillings and replace them with new natural-looking composite fillings and metal-free porcelain crowns.

Metal-Free Dentistry

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and seen unsightly crowns and wondered what is the black line at their gum line?  It is metal. 

“Old-school” crowns are made of a metal-based material coated in porcelain AKA porcelain fused to metal crowns.  These kinds of crowns can appear to look chalky, cause a black line to form at the gums, and have a bulky appearance. The composition of the metal in the crown substructure can sometimes cause chronic gum inflammation in those that are predisposed to allergies, arthritis, or other types of inflammation.

New, modern dental crowns are made of solid porcelain and provide excellent aesthetics and biocompatibility. Porcelain dental crowns are made from zirconia and lithium disilicate which closely mimic tooth enamel. Even if you are not seeking a high-end cosmetic smile enhancement, Dr. Russo is committed to making even routine porcelain dental crowns look aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking.

Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone. A dental emergency can range anywhere from:

  • An accidental tooth knockout
  • A lost filling
  • A crown that fell out or has become loose
  • Mouth swelling
  • Bleeding gums
  • A chipped tooth or cracked tooth
  • Spontaneous tooth pain
  • Mouth sores

Our top-rated cosmetic dentist and smile artist Dr. Justin Russo has extensive hospital-based training in treating dental emergencies and offers same-day appointments for all dental emergencies.
