For decades, the only option available to repair dental decay was amalgam. This material is dark in appearance and cavities treated in the smile line are noticeable. But now there is a tooth colored material to repair decay; you can have the old filling removed and replaced with the composite resin that will match the color of your tooth, and is capable of being shaped to match the contour of surrounding teeth making this repair virtually invisible.
Porcelain restorations are used in many applications; porcelain is the primary choice often selected for its strength and beauty plus it is stain resistant.
Veneers – A veneer is an ultra-thin shell that is fabricated to be cemented over teeth that are deeply stained; chipped teeth can be made to appear whole; misshapen teeth look even; unwanted gaps between teeth disappear … veneers can be placed over one or several teeth to provide a dental transformation that is permanent.
Crowns – Broken teeth or decayed teeth that can no longer support another filling are perfect candidates for crowns. Crowns are also used as the final restoration to cover dental implants … a permanent solution to missing teeth.
Crowns are made to match surrounding teeth in shape and shade … once they are cemented in place you can east most anything (sticky foods like caramels are not recommended).
