With a dental crown, we can completely cover a vulnerable tooth, which shields it from additional damage while also preserving the natural structure that remains. Also known as a “cap,” a dental crown is a highly versatile treatment that is ideal for a tooth that is severely decayed, sensitive, misshapen, cracked, or worn. Although we offer traditional gold crowns due to their durability, many of our patients prefer crowns made from porcelain or zirconia because of their impressive resemblance to natural tooth enamel.
When our practice first opened, the standard for treating damaged caused by cavities was to place a filling made from dark gray amalgam. Nowadays, we have a much healthier and more cosmetically pleasing option – tooth-colored fillings. They’re made from composite resin, a malleable substance that comes in various shades that can be matched to the natural color of your tooth. The resin is also able to directly bond with the tooth’s structure, allowing for smaller fillings that preserve more of your enamel.
