Today, composite resin is preferred over traditional metal fillings. The material is less noticeable once it has been shaded, and it does a better job of strengthening the tooth. They’re obviously suitable for visible teeth, but they can be placed on any tooth in the mouth.
Dental crowns are carefully placed over damaged or weakened teeth. They help the tooth continue to function normally, and they protect the already weakened structure. Our crowns are made out of a strong, resilient material called Zirconia, which closely resembles natural tooth enamel and can blend in with surrounding teeth once properly shaded.
Inlays and onlays are for cavities and dental damage that’s too large for a filling but not to the point where a crown is required. Inlays cover and support the inside of the tooth while onlays tend to cover more of the outer area. Both restorations will be designed to look like a natural part of the tooth.
