Why Choose Super Dental for Restorative Dentistry?
In the past, dentists would use amalgam fillings to treat cavities. These were made from a metal compound that consisted of mercury and a variety of noble metals. Not only were they harsh on your gums, but they also caused several aesthetic problems, like gum discoloration, and weren’t able to create a tight seal between your tooth and the filling. This typically resulted in decay forming despite the presence of the filling. At Super Dental, we use a biocompatible material called composite resin that not only blends in with your surrounding pearly whites, but it also chemically fuses with your enamel to provide lasting protection.
If you have a severely broken or decayed tooth, we may suggest a dental crown to be placed over the top of it to prevent additional discomfort and damage. These are cap-shaped structures that fit over the visible biting surface of teeth to shield and protect them. While they can be made from a variety of materials, you will likely want a crown that is crafted from tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain because it’s virtually indistinguishable from natural enamel. Once placed, you will be able to continue using your tooth as you normally would.
