Unlike traditional silver fillings, tooth-colored fillings can be used to repair small cavities without altering the appearance of a tooth in the process. They are made of composite resin, which can be shaded to match the surrounding enamel. Less enamel has to be removed to place these fillings as well, which leads to a stronger, longer-lasting repair.
If a tooth is too damaged to be fixed with a filling, we can instead cover it with a crown. These sit directly on top of a tooth and are designed to look like healthy enamel. Crowns not only protect the remaining tooth, but they also restore its original shape, size, and strength, meaning they have a cosmetic benefit as well.
One-Visit Dental Restorations
At most other dental offices, it takes two appointments to get a crown…but not at Stephen C. Hale, DDS! Using CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design/manufacturing) technology, we can design, mill, and place a 100% custom porcelain crown in a single visit, fully restoring a tooth in record time.
