Following minor tooth decay, chips, or cracks, we will likely recommend a filling to repair your damaged smile. Traditionally, fillings were made from metal amalgams that were put in place using wedges carved into the healthy tooth structure to hold the filling in place. Today, we use tooth-colored composite resin. Originally, many people assumed these filling materials would be much weaker than their metal counterparts, but the unique restoration process actually leads to a stronger and longer-lasting result.
We begin by removing any damaged tooth structures. Then, we apply putty-like resin directly to the tooth, shaping it into position. Once in position, we use a curing light to harden the resin, seamlessly filling in cracks and crevices in the tooth.
Each year, over two million dental crowns are used to cap a tooth, top off a dental implant, and repair decayed teeth (just a few of their many uses!). To ensure you are an active participant in your care and thoroughly understand your treatment options, we will use an intraoral camera to show you firsthand the oral health concerns that need to be addressed. Fortunately, dental crowns today are extremely lifelike in look and feel, allowing you to restore the function and aesthetic of your teeth without calling attention to your treatment.
