When you look in the mirror, are you troubled by outdated and easily spotted restorations, such as metal crowns or dental fillings? Worse, are you suffering from discomfort when eating because of an undiagnosed dental issue, like a potential cavity, for instance? Have you delayed a trip to the dentist because you are not sure what can be done to either update your outdated restoration, or to help restore your smile for the first time, after trauma or another dental problem? If so, it is time to speak with your restorative dentist about the many beautiful ways of improving your smile!

Are You In Need of a Modern Dental Filling?

Metal amalgam dental fillings were once the most common way of address dental cavities. Fortunately, now many dentists offer a more beautiful solution. Tooth-colored dental fillings are a great option for address cavities, because the composite resin material bonds tightly with teeth, creating a great seal against infection. The results are natural, and since resin conducts less heat than metal, these modern fillings are often far more comfortable as well.

Perhaps a Crown Is What Your Smile Needs

If it is a chip, crack, other dental problem, or dated crown that needs addressing, your restorative dentist may recommend a porcelain crown. These crowns are designed to look natural, while still providing great protection against infection or worsening wear.

These crowns enjoy the many benefits of porcelain, including its natural appearance and its longevity, thanks to the fact that it is both strong and stain resistant, much like natural tooth enamel, allowing for easy care of porcelain crowns.
