Many older patients likely still have traditional amalgam fillings in their smiles, but today’s modern solution to cavities is a big improvement over this age-old restorative method. Our dentists now rely on composite resin, which comes in a wide spectrum of enamel-like shades that can be beautifully matched to your natural teeth. In addition to the clear aesthetic benefits, tooth-colored fillings are also more conservative and comfortable because of their metal-free nature. Patients won’t need to worry about excessive sensitivity when eating hot or cold foods!
Dental crowns are named as such because they’re designed to completely fit over the top of the tooth’s visible structure, both protecting what remains and rebuilding the damaged portions. This type of restorative care may be recommended when a natural tooth has a large cavity, recently suffered an injury, or has become noticeably weakened over time. They’re also often paired with traditional dental bridges and dental implants for seamless, attractive tooth replacement.
In order to save our patients valuable time, Dr. Saremi and Dr. De Vincenzo strive to offer same-day restorative care whenever possible. This means that you can often walk in with a pained or injured tooth and leave a short while later with a new addition that provides the protection and revitalization you need – no further scheduling or “temporary” work required. Simply put, this approach maximizes convenience without compromising on quality!
