Fillings & Crowns
White, composite fillings can cosmetically blend with the adjacent tooth much better than old metal fillings, and they also offer a number of health-related benefits. As opposed to metal fillings, tooth colored fillings are bonded to healthy tooth structure. Additionally, composite fillings are not as temperature-sensitive as metal, so they do not expand as much with heat helping avoid cracking of the tooth over time.
Crowns are long lasting restorations that are used to restore teeth that have been weakened or damaged due to decay, fracture, cracks, large fillings, root canal therapy or trauma. Crowns are popularly known as “caps”.
