When a tooth develops a small cavity, the way we fix it involves removing the decayed enamel and then filling it in. In the past, the filling material was metal amalgam, but our practice now uses a composite resin. Why? Firstly, it can be shaded to match the surrounding tooth so the restoration blends seamlessly into the smile. Plus, the resin bonds more firmly to teeth compared to amalgam, which in turn makes the enamel stronger and less likely to develop future issues. In short, this is a solution that both looks good and can be trusted to last!
Rather than simply removing a tooth that is extensively damaged or decayed, we can fit it for a dental crown that helps it appear and function like brand new. These restorations are designed to sit on top of compromised teeth and protect the remaining enamel while renewing it at the same time. Strong metal crowns are perfect for the back teeth, and for the front teeth, we can provide 100% porcelain crowns that even you won’t be able to distinguish from the rest of your smile.
