Once we've restored your teeth with tooth-colored materials, these restorations will serve you well for several years. The resin (plastic) material used contains small “filler” particles of glass-like material for strength and wear resistance. They contain the finest and most up-to-date materials available today. However, you should be aware of the following information about your new restorations:
When a tooth has a cavity the dentist removes the decay and fills the hole with filling material, the tooth supports the filling. When you get a cavity that takes up more than half of the tooth, a crown is indicated. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds the tooth together. Sometimes we place a filling thinking there is enough tooth to hold the filling when actually the tooth’s job is bigger than the filling can handle. The tooth then starts to break away because it can no longer support the filling. In this case we will credit the cost of the filling towards the cost of the crown.
The greatest compliment our patients can give is the referral of their friends and loved ones.
Refer a friend or family member to us and be sure they mention your name on their paperwork so that we can personally thank you. We'll also send you a $25 gift card to show our appreciation after their new patient exam, x-rays and cleaning.
