Teeth are incredibly durable, but that doesn’t mean they can’t erode, chip, or break down in some way. Keeping your natural teeth is always preferable to extraction, and long-lasting, natural-looking restorations from Dr. Brice ensures that’s the case moving forward. Our passionate team is dedicated to going the extra mile in every way, and that couldn’t be clearer when it comes to restorative crowns and tooth-colored fillings. If your tooth is damaged or you need to have a restoration replaced, give our dental office a call for restorative dentistry in San Antonio, TX!
When teeth become severely damaged by decay or injury, a dental crown can restore not just their function, but also their appearance. Each crown Dr. Brice designs is carefully crafted to fit over your damaged tooth exactly, ensuring long-term preservation. No longer should you have to worry about whether you can eat the foods you used to or if you’ll be able to smile with confidence. Most dental crowns can be placed in two appointments.
If a tooth only maintains minor damage, a tooth-colored filling can be placed to prevent future damage of the tooth, remove discomfort and sensitivity, and maintain its natural appearance. Our dental office uses composite resin over silver amalgam to restore teeth, not just because of its esthetic benefits, but long-term ones as well. Composite resin is generally easier to work with, reduces the need for removing existing tooth enamel to place, and does not carry the setbacks that silver fillings do after many years of use.
If you need multiple restorative treatments performed, it can truly feel like a daunting experience. Thankfully, Dr. Brice is prepared to walk you through each treatment you might need to restore your smile and your oral health. Whether it’s multiple tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants, or other complex restorations to repair and replace teeth, we’ll make sure that you’re fully informed and play a major role in the treatment process.
