Is a Filling the Answer? How About a Dental Crown?

Dental fillings and crowns were once predominantly made of metal. Unfortunately, these were not always a great option. People with metal allergies and sensitivities, for instance, might not have safely been able to have restorative work completed when metal was the only option. Fortunately, now there are more esthetically-pleasing, and often more comfortable alternatives.

In the case of cavities, many dentists recommend simple, minimally invasive dental fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material, that bonds well with teeth, creating a tight seal against decay or infection. These fillings are also made to look natural, allowing them blend almost seamlessly with your natural smile, from the size and shape to the shade of your natural teeth.

For bigger problems, such as chipped or cracked teeth, or even excessive wear, crowns are often the best form of restoration. Porcelain crowns are made to look natural, while still protecting the teeth. A crown helps bear the force of chewing, therefore keeping the tooth safe and intact.
