Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the teeth’s natural beauty. Composite fillings can be matched very closely to your natural color and are virtually indistinguishable from non-restored teeth.
Filling post op instructions:
A Crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protected a week tooth from fracturing, or restore a fractured tooth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy will require a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. We only use materials for crowns that will provide the longest lasting benefits to our patients.

A fixed bridge is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge helps to create a normal bite, prevent stress on the dental arch, prevent the drifting and tilt of adjacent teeth, inhibit decay in difficult areas, and slow the onset of periodontal disease. Bridges are composed of abutments, the sound teeth on either side acting as supports, and a span, a framework attached to the abutments with artificial teeth attached to the framework.
