What Are The Benefits of Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings are made from non-toxic, tooth-colored plastic and a blend of quartz customized to match your teeth’ color. Some of the advantages of using composite fillings for refilling cavities include:
- They are mercury-free, unlike amalgam fillings
- They are less sensitive to changes in temperature, unlike amalgam fillings
- They are almost as strong and durable as natural teeth
- They easily blend in with your teeth, making it difficult to identify
What is The Purpose of Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a cap that encases your tooth to restore a damaged tooth to its original size and shape. Additionally, dental crowns are more durable than composite fillings and they also improve the appearance of your teeth. Dr. Procopio and Butensky may recommend dental crowns for the following conditions:
- Fractured fillings
- Cosmetic purposes
- Extreme damage due to tooth decay
- Fractured or broken teeth
- Encasing a tooth after undergoing a root canal treatment
When Should Your Tooth Be Extracted?
There are severe tooth damage cases where dental crowns and composite fillings can do little to give you a vibrant smile. In such cases, Dr. Procopio and Butensky may advocate for a dental extraction. The team ensures you are comfortable and ready before beginning the extraction procedure. Dental Studios uses local anesthesia to calm you during the dental procedure. If the procedure is a bit complex, your doctor may use nitrous oxide to remove any anxiety as you have your oral health put back in check.
