Tooth-colored fillings can be used to quickly repair minor cavities while seamlessly blending into the smile. Made of composite resin, this material can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding enamel so that the final restoration is virtually invisible, all while providing long-term protection for a patient’s oral health.
For a severely damaged tooth, a dental crown provides an excellent solution. It’s a tooth-shaped covering that is bonded on top of the affected tooth, renewing its size, shape, strength, and overall appearance. Multiple crowns affixed together form a dental bridge, which replaces one, two, or several consecutively missing teeth. Dental crowns and bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic/porcelain, metal alloys, and gold. The one that is right for you depends on where in the mouth it will go, your budget, and your personal preference.
Disease, decay, and injury can cause serious trauma to the teeth and gums, significantly marring a patient’s oral health and appearance. But our expert restorative dentist can bring back your healthy smile using a full-mouth reconstruction. A full-mouth reconstruction marries the creativity of cosmetics to the functionality of restorative dentistry to fix and repair even the most damaged teeth and gums.
