Fillings, Crowns and Bridges
- Fillings – At Arch City Dental, we prefer to use tooth colored composite resin for restorations. They provide good durability and resistance to fracture in fillings that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Composite fillings require less tooth structure be removed when the dentist prepares the tooth than amalgam (silver colored) fillings, and are virtually invisible to the untrained eye once in your mouth.
- Crowns – Crowns become necessary to restore the natural shape and size of teeth with larger fillings, when there isn’t enough tooth left for a traditional filling. Crowns can also be used to cover implants, and make your tooth stronger, with an improved appearance. They come in a variety of materials including porcelain and gold.
- Bridges – Bridges offer an option to replace one or more missing teeth with artificial ones. They help maintain the look of your smile and will alleviate stress on your bite and other teeth by replacing the missing ones.
