Tooth-colored Fillings & Crowns
Damaged teeth are usually restored with either a filling or a dental crown. Your Houston dentist will determine which treatment to use by the extent of the damage. For cavities that have affected less than 50 percent of the tooth, fillings are used to repair the area. Dental crowns can correct more serious problems like extra-large cavities, or missing or broken teeth. At Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates in Houston, porcelain crowns and fillings made of tooth-colored composite resin provide our patients a metal-free, aesthetically pleasing look.
Tooth-colored fillings are very durable and can restore the appearance of your fillings. Amalgam fillings contain mercury which poses potential health risks. Tooth-colored fillings, eliminate these risks. The material used to make tooth-colored fillings is a safe alternative for patients of any age. If you have existing metal fillings, your Houston Dentist, Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates can replace them with safer tooth-colored fillings. This will enhance your smile and make your cavities virtually unnoticeable.
Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates offers procedures to help reinforce and strengthen decayed or damaged back teeth and the adjacent teeth. Dental inlays will reinforce the back teeth if the damage lies along the crevices of the chewing surfaces. Onlays treat damaged and decayed teeth on the top area.
Inlays and onlays are made of tooth-colored resin that is color matched to the natural tooth. Contact your cosmetic dentist in Houston to learn more about the benefits of each option and discuss which may be right for you.
If you are experiencing pain and sensitivity due to chipped, cracked or decayed teeth, a tooth-colored crown may be more effective than the previous options. A porcelain or zirconia crown will add strength and added protection to your vulnerable tooth. A cast of your damaged tooth is made and a custom crown is created then attached with oral cement. Porcelain and zirconia crowns are built to last for many, many years.
