There is an aesthetic, durable alternative to the silver fillings that mar the appearance of your beautiful smile. If you have a cavity or minor dental damage, tooth colored fillings come to the rescue. Made out of natural-looking composite resin, tooth colored fillings strengthen your enamel after decay and can rebuild the structure of a damaged tooth, too. With a tooth colored filling, there’s no risk of mercury exposure as with amalgam fillings. The material also dries within minutes under the application of a special UV light. Tooth colored fillings are an excellent option in modern, effective, aesthetic dentistry.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and fixed bridges are two of the most commonly recommended restorative dentistry solutions at Applegate Dental. Crowns are used to restore teeth in a number of situations including:
- Severe decay too extensive to be restored with a filling or other more conservative options
- Cosmetic flaws like misshapen or malformed teeth or deep-set stains
- As the finishing touch on root canal therapy to protect the treated tooth
- As part of dental implant
- To hold fixed bridge dental prosthetics in position affixed to crowns on either side of one or more replacement teeth
Whatever reason patients need a dental crown, the process is the same. Patients should plan to visit our team two times. During an initial visit, a small amount of surface enamel is removed from teeth to prepare them to receive a crown. We then collect dental impressions to send to our trusted lab where a custom crown is crafted. In the meantime, we place a temporary crown to protect the tooth. Once the final crown or bridge is returned to our dental office, patients come back for a second appointment where we exchange the temporary for a permanent solution.
