Unlike other parts of the body, teeth do not regenerate once they’ve become damaged. That’s why it’s so important to care for the teeth that you have and make them last as long as possible. At Saginaw Dental, we make use of the most durable and natural-looking materials possible to restore damaged teeth. Our dental fillings and crowns are designed to withstand the test of time, without forcing you to sacrifice esthetics. Give our dental office a call to get started with restorative dentistry in Saginaw!
Unlike the silver amalgam fillings of the past, tooth-colored fillings do not use any metal materials whatsoever to restore teeth. Instead, they use a material known as composite resin, which combines glass and plastic, to effectively restore cavities in teeth and maintain their longevity. Once blended to match your existing tooth enamel exactly, we’ll mold and shape the material inside of your tooth, harden it using a curing tool, and send you on your way.
When damage is more extensive and a dental filling is not enough, dental crowns can effectively restore teeth and prevent future bacteria from reaching the inner tooth. Each crown is customized not just to blend in with your smile and make it look uniform, but to keep your bite even. An even bite ensures that no stress is put on nearby areas of your mouth and that chewing feels comfortable.
