- We Accept Dental Insurance
- Durable, Biocompatible Cavity Fillings
Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are made to fit over the biting surface of teeth and provide them with added strength and protection. They can be crafted from a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, and zirconia. However, most of our patients choose to have them made from more natural-looking zirconia or porcelain. Once placed over a treated damaged or decayed tooth, the crown will protect it from being harmed by oral bacteria and allow you to continue using it as you normally would without worrying about it sustaining even more damage.
Tooth-colored fillings are made from a biocompatible material called composite resin. The resin is comprised of finely ground-up particles of acrylic and plastic, giving it the ability to chemically fuse with your natural enamel and provide a seamless, leak-free bond. Dr. Wheeler will choose a shade of resin that best matches with the color of your surrounding enamel, so once your filling is placed, you likely won’t even be able to tell which of your teeth had a cavity!
