Will You Need a Crown?
Crowns can often be a part of your dental treatment. A tooth can be
broken down over time by decay or just general wear. When the tooth
is too damaged for a filling, we will place a crown over it in order
to save it and, in fact, strengthen it. We use only the highest
quality materials, like porcelain, to construct your crown. A crown
will often last 20 years or even longer. It will look so natural
that you won’t be able to distinguish it from a natural tooth.
No Mercury! No Metals!
For years, the silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling
material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it.
While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain
shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and
does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of
our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with
the way they look. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in
their teeth. We offer modern restorations that are a natural-looking
white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth.
They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth so
there is much less chance of decay in the future.
