Teeth can still develop cavities even when they’re well-cared for; after all, the bacteria in your mouth are constantly looking for opportunities to attack your enamel. Whenever a tooth becomes decayed, we can replace the enamel that was lost with a filling. Our dental office uses tooth-colored materials in place of traditional amalgam fillings due to their ability to match the color and light-reflecting properties of the enamel. It usually takes just one visit to repair a tooth with a filling.
Crowns are commonly used to repair all kinds of dental injuries, such as teeth that have been badly cracked or decayed. This type of restoration can make up for missing portions of the tooth’s structure, and it can protect the remaining parts of the tooth from further damage. We personalize each crown so that it fits in with your other teeth and contributes to an even, stable bite. It takes at least two appointments to design, create, and place a dental crown.
