Unfortunately, unlike almost every other part of your body, your teeth actually can’t heal themselves. Small cavities will inevitably turn into larger ones, and chipped teeth will fracture and fall out altogether. Allowing a minor dental problem to turn into a major one can be painful for both your mouth as well as your wallet, but being proactive and getting everything repaired quickly can help you save a lot of physical and financial discomfort in the long run.
Dental crowns enable our team to repair severely damaged teeth and save them from being extracted. A tooth-shaped “cap” is placed over a tooth to restore any damaged enamel, bringing back its strength, appearance, and function all at the same time. At Evans Street Dental, we can provide strong and durable metal crowns for the back teeth as well as beautiful, natural-looking porcelain ones for the front teeth that show when you smile.
For minor cavities, rather than using dark gray metal fillings to repair them that will instantly stick out in the smile, we instead provide tooth-colored fillings. Made of a composite resin, these can be matched to any patient’s shade of enamel so the restoration itself easily blends with a tooth and disappears within the smile. Even better, because these fillings are metal-free, they don’t cause temperature sensitivity like regular fillings as well.
