Tooth-Colored Crowns & Fillings in South Tampa
Cavities are caused by excess sugars or acids in the mouth. Lifestyle choices largely determine the frequency or likelihood of suffering from cavities or tooth decay. A dental filling prevents further decay in the cavity site.
Composite resin fillings are durable acrylic, similar in color to natural teeth. Thus, they are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings. They are also compatible with sealants, allowing multiple procedures in a single sitting. Composite fillings harden in less than a minute and bonds to your existing tooth, strengthening your structure. Another advantage to composite filling is if it is damaged or starts to degrade due to excess chewing or teeth grinding, we can repair it.
If you have a tooth that is damaged and is disrupting the appearance and function of your smile, a porcelain crown may be the best option. Porcelain crown placement only requires two visits for our dentist to design and place the crown.
Porcelain crowns are designed to match the color of your natural enamel, which makes them ideal for discreet, natural-looking dental repairs. Crowns, however, can be made from other materials such as porcelain fused to metal or full gold crowns. The Studio will help you determine which crown is best for your smile based on your unique case!
When Do I Need a Crown?
Dental crowns are custom-crafted restorations that are designed to cover a single tooth, restoring its natural shape and function while preserving the original structure. This is a very common restorative solution that can effectively treat a wide variety of dental concerns, including the following:
- When a tooth is structurally injured.
- When a tooth is badly decayed and can no longer be treated by a filling.
- When a tooth is badly weakened and in need of structural support to prevent splitting or fracturing.
- When a tooth has been treated with root canal therapy and needs additional structural support.
