Too Much Decay Present For A Filling

Silver Fillings or composite plastics (resins) are the most commonly used restorative materials, in the treatment of tooth decay. These materials can often times accomplish the aim of replacing the part of the tooth that has been lost to decay, in a strong and good-looking manner.

However damage to the tooth is sometimes so severe that too much of the structure would have to be removed in order to restore the whole. Then the restoration must be done using a technique that will bond to the remaining tooth, stand up under heavier use and meet your specific cosmetic requirements.

A Crown is the dental restoration that can strengthen and restore the entire top of a tooth. The crown can also be part of the attachment of a fixed bridge for the replacement of teeth. The tooth is strengthened because it is covered from the outside with a casting of metal and ceramic, or all metal, that will wrap up and splint the tooth.
Chewing can be improved because the crown can be reshaped to match more efficiently with the opposing teeth. A crown can improve cosmetics by the use of modern ceramic processes that will reproduce a much more natural look than has ever been possible before.
