Fillings and Crowns
Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the teeth’s natural beauty. Composite fillings can be matched very closely to your child’s natural tooth color and are virtually indistinguishable from non-restored teeth. Composite fillings are excellent options for front teeth, but may be suggested for selected sites on molars as well. The composites we use have proven to be extremely durable and stain resistant.
A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure. A tooth that has been treated with pulp therapy will require a crown to provide strength and support to the tooth. Stainless steel crowns are typically used on molar primary teeth and Pre-veneered white crowns for the front teeth. Recommendations will be discussed in detail during the examination/consultation appointment.
