Do you have a few teeth that have seen better days? Has dental decay or damage made you more hesitant to smile? Are your problem teeth causing you pain? If so, then the team at MayFair Dental Associates is ready to fix all of your problems with our restorative services. Using custom-made restorations designed especially for you, we can practically turn back the clock for your smile and make any dental issues virtually disappear.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is designed to fit over the top of a tooth in order to replenish its original shape, size, and strength after it has been damaged. With one, we can repair a large cavity, fix large chips and cracks, and even cosmetically enhance the appearance of oddly-shaped teeth. They are always designed to blend seamlessly with a patient’s smile, and with the proper care, they can easily last for multiple decades.
When repairing small cavities or slightly damaged teeth, instead of using dark gray amalgam fillings, we now have a much more aesthetically-friendly option: tooth-colored fillings. They are made of a composite resin that comes in several natural shades and can be perfectly matched to any smile. This material also enables us to place smaller, more conservative fillings that better preserve a tooth’s natural strength, leading to a longer-lasting restoration.
In the past, if you needed to have a decayed or broken tooth repaired with a dental crown, you’d have to attend at least two dental appointments. Most people don’t even have time for one these days! Thankfully, our CEREC system gives us the ability to design, fabricate, and place high-quality, custom-made crowns in just one quick appointment. Now, a patient can walk into our dental office with a compromised tooth, and about an hour later, leave with a completely restored smile!
