If you believe that your dental problem is so minor that it can just be ignored, think again. Unfortunately, pretty much all dental issues, whether it’s a cavity or cracked tooth, only get worse as time goes by. Decay progresses and turns into pain, and broken enamel usually wears down until a tooth’s sensitive nerve is exposed, leading to…you guessed it…pain. The best approach is to take care of an issue right away before it becomes a major headache, which is exactly what our team can do with the treatments detailed below.
A dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant. Once it is permanently bonded in place, only a dentist or specialist can remove it. With proper care and good oral hygiene, the life of a crown can range from 5 to 15 years or longer.
Rather than using dark gray silver fillings to repair cavities and slightly damaged teeth, our team is able to make cavities practically disappear with tooth-colored fillings. They are made of a composite resin material that comes in a variety of natural shades, meaning we can place a restoration that’s guaranteed to blend into any smile. Tooth-colored fillings also bond better to dental structure than old metal ones, which in turn helps the tooth as well as the restoration last much longer.
