Teeth are made up of the most durable organic material in the human body, but that doesn’t mean your enamel still can’t break down over time. Additionally, a severe oral injury can easily leave your tooth fractured, resulting in severe discomfort and even oral infection. When a tooth is damaged, the best thing you can do is get your tooth restored, so it doesn’t break down more or require an extraction later.

Dental fillings of the past used silver to restore damaged teeth, which is hardly ideal if you care about your smile’s appearance. On top of that, silver fillings would actually cause more harm the older they get. This is mainly due to exposure to hot and cold temperatures causing the metal materials to expand inside of the tooth, further fracturing it. Since tooth-colored fillings do not expand like silver, you can expect a filling that fits inside of teeth more effectively, all without making significant modifications to your enamel to place.
Whether your tooth is damaged by severe decay or dental injury, dental crowns can restore their function and appearance to the fullest! These restorations can be made from a variety of different materials, including silver, gold, and porcelain. Of course, we’ll make sure your crown is customized to your exact preference, including fit and appearance. Dental crowns offer the best solution to saving teeth and preventing the need for an extraction later.
