A crown, often times referred to as a cap, works by fitting over a damaged tooth to protect it as well as replenish its strength and appearance. They are specially made to resemble natural teeth, and they can be used to fully repair teeth with large cavities, severe breaks, and obvious cosmetic imperfections.
If you’re simply looking to spruce up your smile and take care of a problem that has bothered you for years, cosmetic bonding can be the quick and easy solution you need. Dr. Nase or Dr. Rosales can make minor chips, gaps, and stains disappear in just one appointment. They’ll simply apply a color-matched composite resin to the offending tooth and shape it to look like perfectly healthy enamel. In as little as an hour, it will seem like the problem was never there in the first place.
If you have a cavity that needs a filling, we offer both white (composite) and silver (amalgam) fillings. Both of these options have varying advantages that your dentist can discuss with you. If a composite resin is used on your tooth, the material can be shaded to seamlessly blend into the surrounding enamel, ensuring no one will notice your dental work.
