Tooth-Colored Fillings

Smaller cavities and minor damage can be repaired with a filling. Some patients might remember that fillings used to be made from a metallic material called amalgam. For a variety of reasons, this is no longer the case today, because we now make these simple, yet effective, restorations with the composite resin. This material is just as strong as amalgam, but it blends in with the enamel, does not cause tooth sensitivity, and actively supports the tooth.

Dental Crowns

If the damage is too severe for a filling but not so bad that an extraction is the only option, a dental crown is probably your best choice for restorative dentistry. These tooth-shaped caps can be made from different materials based on the situation. For example, you might get a traditional gold crown for a tooth near the back of your mouth, but porcelain fused to metal, zirconia, and porcelain are available for the more visible teeth.
