Cavities or cracks

Customary amalgam fillings work fine in the back of the mouth, but most people don't want to reveal a "metal mouth" when they smile. An alternative is to use tooth-colored fillings," which match the color of the teeth. These fillings are made with composite material similar to that used to repair chips or cracks. Some white fillings (direct composites) are pressed into the cavity and cured (hardened) with a special high-intensity blue light. Others (indirect composites or porcelain inlays) are made in a laboratory and then cemented in place. They cost much more than amalgam fillings, but are much more attractive.

Veneers are among the most costly cosmetic procedures. Made from ultra-thin shells of porcelain that come in every shade of white, veneers are permanently bonded to the fronts of the teeth, giving them an entirely new esthetic appearance. The approach used to correct the gap depends on your cosmetic concern. Some people like or don't mind a gap. Others are very aware of it and want it closed. You and our dentist can decide the best treatment option. In some cases, the best option is no treatment. In others, it is bonding, veneers or an orthodontic consultation. -GO TO TOP-

Broken or crooked teeth
If a tooth has been badly broken down or is structurally weak, you may need a crown. Today, crowns on front teeth are made of tooth-colored porcelain that can appear very life-like. The crown may be a porcelain jacket (all porcelain) or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, in which a very thin metal coping supports the porcelain. Both crowns offer excellent results. The choice of crowns depends on your bite (occlusion), your preferences and our dentist's preferences.
