FILLINGS + CROWNS
Why choose Dental Fillings?
- Blends in with your tooth for a natural appearance

A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Dental filling materials, which include composite, porcelain and silver amalgam, may be used to even out tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing.
Enamel loss is a common component of tooth decay, and may result in tooth sensitivity. In many cases, tooth sensitivity caused by enamel loss will be significantly improved or completely eliminated once an appropriate dental filling material is placed.
Why choose Dental Crowns?
- Provides more resistance to teeth stains
- Provides the best possible protection to a heavily broken down tooth
- It can last longer
Dental crowns are objects made out of different available materials that cover up a problematic tooth. These coverings or wraps are shaped into an actual tooth to give an aesthetically pleasing look. Usually such a procedure is necessary when a particular tooth is nearing decay or in certain instances when a tooth is broken or has severe shape or color inconsistencies.
There are many different types of materials available if one should need a dental crown. For example, full gold crowns are recommended due to its strong consistency which upholds against biting and chewing forces. The only drawback to metal crowns involve the color of the actual crown, which many find aesthetically unappealing. Other materials available include porcelain fused to metal crowns, these crowns are recommended for the front lateral or back molar teeth as they can easily chip or break due to its compound material.
