For minor cavities, a filling can be used to replace any damaged enamel as well as restore stability to the affected tooth. Rather than using dark gray amalgam to do this, we instead utilize composite resin fillings. These can be colored to match any patient’s enamel so the final result looks completely natural, and they can be placed in one quick appointment. Afterward, only the patient and their dentist will be able to tell where the filling actually is.
Also known as “caps,” dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that are affixed over compromised teeth to protect and renew them at the same time. We use them to repair cavities that are too large for a filling, put broken and cracked teeth back together, and improve the appearance of a permanently stained or misshapen tooth. You can get your own custom-made porcelain crown in just two appointments, and after that, it should last for multiple decades.
