Is your smile looking a little lackluster these days? Perhaps your teeth are worn down, damaged, or decayed. If you’re in need of restorative dentistry that won’t compromise the appearance of your smile or if you are looking to replace old metal dental work, Dr. James Fondriest and our team explain how restorative dentistry can restore the function of your teeth and actually improve the appearance of your smile.
White Porcelain Crowns
A crown is common restoration for severely damaged or decayed teeth. Patients who have experienced a traumatic tooth injury or those with extensive decay may benefit from the placement of a crown. In the past, crowns were typically made of metal or gold. Today, however, patients have many natural-looking options for crowns. These restorations can be made from zirconia, porcelain fused to metal, or all porcelain. Made just for you in dental laboratories, crown will be placed over the entire tooth above the gum line. After your crown is placed, your tooth will be restored to its proper size and shape. Instead of unsightly metal, patients can now enjoy restorations that look and feel natural.
White Fillings in Lake Forest
In the past, cavities were addressed with dark amalgam fillings. Luckily, most small areas of decay are addressed with biocompatible, composite resin fillings today. These restorations are durable and natural looking. In fact, composite resin is tinted to match the color of your natural teeth. Our patients with composite resin white fillings enjoy these discrete restorations.
