We Can Reverse Damage and Provide Greater Strength with Dental Crowns and Fillings for Waco Families
Research shows that up to 97% of the world’s population suffers from cavities. Cavities are extremely common, even amongst those who feel they take good care of their teeth. Why? It’s easy to miss a spot, and the buildup of plaque in that one spot can eventually cause a cavity. Of course, regular general dentistry visits to our Waco dental office will greatly reduce your risk of cavities and damage. But if you’ve developed a cavity, broken a tooth, or have experienced an injury to a tooth, crowns and fillings may be needed to restore optimal function and form to your teeth.
If you’re interested in a dental filling that provides more cosmetically satisfying results, consider composite fillings from Premier Family Dental. Our Waco dental office believes that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your appearance in order to achieve stronger teeth once decay has taken hold. Using this tooth-colored material instead of the traditional silver amalgam, your dental fillings will have a more natural look, and no one will notice you’ve had cavities filled. Composite resin fillings are extremely durable, and they can be placed in just one visit.
Sometimes decay or damage to your teeth is so extensive, a dental filling won’t do the trick. When this happens, a dental crown may be the best option for restoring your tooth. Crowns are often used when:
- You’ve broken a tooth.
- You’re in need of a cosmetic enhancement.
- Decay is extensive.
- A filling has fractured.
- You’ve received root canal therapy.
Crowns are shaped like natural teeth and cover up problems, strengthening your damaged tooth or teeth. Porcelain crowns provide an especially natural look in comparison with metal crowns, making them the most popular option, but we will consult with you to help determine which type of crown will provide you with the best value and excellent results. You’ll need about two visits to Premier Family Dental to have your crowns fitted, created, and placed.
If it’s been a while since you’ve visited the dentist, we recommend you contact our Waco dental office today for an appointment. You may be in need of dental crowns or fillings, and we want to make sure we get you started soon with a treatment plan that will prevent the damage from causing more problems. Residents of Lorena and Robinson will find our office convenient as well.
