Normally, when you see someone with an old filling, they were given an unsightly metallic material that contrasts with their teeth. With current technology we have been able to perfect the art of restorative dentistry so you don’t have to compromise on protecting your tooth and appearance. With CEREC crowns, dental bridges, and composite filling and bonding we can repair your tooth while also enhancing the beauty of your smile.
When a tooth is damaged due to poor dental hygiene or trauma, it needs to be repaired in order to get your oral health back on track; this is where restorative dentistry comes in. Whether you need a filling for a cavity, crown to cover a broken tooth, or bonding to repair cracks and chips, we can repair your dental issues for a healthier and more attractive smile.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
- CEREC – With CEREC dentistry we can create customized crowns digitally and have them made during the same appointment, ultimately saving you time and money. Having your permanent crown on the same day means no temporary restorations or follow up appointments. These crowns can be used to cover a broken tooth, attached to a dental bridge, or attached to a dental implant.
- Fillings – Almost ninety percent of people will have a cavity at some point in their life, which means those ninety-percent are going to need a filling to protect their tooth from further decay. We can fill in the cavity with a tooth-colored resin so the filling blends in with the rest of the tooth and looks completely natural.
- Composite bonding – Bonding is a great and affordable way to repair cracks, chips, and gaps in your teeth. The resin is put on layer by layer so it is strong and natural looking. Once the resin has dried, it is shaped and polished to completely reshape and rejuvenate your smile.
