When you have cavities, the natural solution is generally a filling. Traditional fillings are made of a mix of metals, while tooth-colored fillings – as you may have gathered from the name – closely resemble natural enamel. Not only does this look more seamless in your smile, but it provides better support for the tooth’s structure, meaning it’s ideal for preserving the health and strength of the original enamel. Each filling will be carefully sculpted and shaded until it perfectly matches the surrounding teeth.
When there’s extensive damage that a filling can’t fix, a crown can be placed over the tooth. Generally speaking, crowns are recommended in situations where a tooth has been damaged in an accident or when a cavity has spread to more than half of the enamel. Small amounts of enamel need to be removed in order to make room for the crown, which will be designed to match your remaining teeth. Porcelain crowns normally last for about 10 to 15 years.
