Teeth are incredibly durable and meant to withstand daily forces, but that doesn’t mean they won’t erode or break down in some way eventually. Even with the best at-home oral care, your tooth enamel can chip, crack, and even break apart, causing severe discomfort and making it nearly impossible to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages. At Allen Smile Design, we’ll make sure your next restorative treatment gives your teeth new life, so you can enjoy yours. Call our office to consider your options for tooth repair today!
If you already have dental fillings, there’s a chance that they are made from silver amalgam, a material designed to protect teeth, but with a few setbacks. For one, amalgam is very visible in teeth, making it less than ideal for appearances. It also tends to cause teeth to fracture further when placed in the tooth for too long. It even requires removal of additional enamel to place! Tooth-colored fillings use no metal whatsoever, helping you avoid all of these compromises.
Dental crowns comes in many different forms, but they all serve the same general purpose; to repair, restore and protect teeth from future damage. Each crown we make is designed to last a very long time, make it easy to chew food, and make your smile look complete and natural. They are also used to create dental bridges, dentures, and to cover dental implants after they’ve been placed inside of the jaw.
