Broken fillings and crowns can be painful, which is why it’s always a good idea to come visit your dentist when your teeth are hurting. Sometimes teeth are just sensitive, but other times, the pain can be due to chipped enamel or broken fillings or dental crowns. The only way to know for sure is to come and have an oral exam so we can fix it for you. Come on in and enjoy your pain-free smile once again! Call today!
If you’re familiar with the silver/amalgam fillings of the past, you’re likely aware of the fact that they can reflect light quite easily, making them more visible. If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity where the filling is (or perhaps once was), then it’s time to get it replaced before more damage can develop. Tooth-colored fillings use composite resin to effectively seal damaged teeth without forcing you to make sacrifices in your smile’s appearance.
Crowns, also known as caps, are dental restorations typically made from porcelain or metal alloys. These devices are designed to sit on top of teeth damaged by decay, prevent future damage from occurring, and prevent the risk of them developing an infection later. Our dental office customizes your dental crown to fit over your tooth exactly, giving you the confidence to chew your favorite foods and smile without worry. If your tooth is significantly damaged, don’t wait to get your restoration fabricated and placed!
