A tooth filling is a restorative procedure used to repair cavities or other damage to the teeth. In the past, most tooth fillings were made from metal, such as silver or gold. However, these metals can be visibly noticeable and some patients are concerned about the potential health risks associated with them. As a result, we only use composite materials for tooth fillings. Composite fillings are made from a mixture of glass or quartz and plastic, which can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. In addition, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth, providing added strength and stability. While they are more expensive than metal fillings, composite fillings offer a more aesthetically pleasing option for patients who are concerned about their appearance.
In addition, composite fillings bond to the tooth, which helps to prevent further tooth damage. As a result, composite fillings are a great option for restoring teeth that have been damaged decay.
A dental crown is a restorative dental procedure used to cover a tooth that is damaged or decayed.They are used to restore a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. They can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth. The procedure involves shaping the existing tooth, then placing a custom-made crown over it. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic, and porcelain. In most cases, the crown will be matched to the color of the surrounding teeth. Dental Crowns makes underlying tooth stronger and more durable. Endodontically treated tooth(Root canal treatment) becomes very brittle over period of time and should receive dental crown to protect the tooth from fracture.
