Tooth decay and discoloration are common problems in adults, mostly caused by sugary foods and sodas, and artificial drinks. When facing such dilemmas, you have a range of treatment options. Valley Wide Dental provides all those expert treatments depending on the extent of damage your teeth have sustained.
Mainly to repair tooth cavities, filling involves removing the infected or damaged part of the tooth and filling it with silver amalgam or composite that settles to give a solid feel. This is to prevent pain and restore the functionality of your teeth.
Valley Wide Dental offers all kinds of fillings including:
- Amalgam fillings: heard-wearing and long-lasting combination of metals like silver, copper, and tin, ideal for the back teeth.
- Composite fillings: Softer than the amalgam, but equally long-lasting, these are tooth-colored fillings for teeth where the filling is visible.
- Inlays and overlays: Can be made of amalgam, metal, or porcelain to fit inside the cavity or cover the top
- Temporary fillings: Just a temporary solution for teeth that require a more permanent treatment like implants
Crowns are placed on teeth that are damaged or too weak to sustain and filling is not an option. They can also be introduced for cosmetic reasons. But generally, the crowns sit atop large filling, a fractured tooth, or weak teeth after a root canal treatment.
At Valley Wide Dental we offer all kinds of Crowns, such as Porcelain, Metal, or ceramic/zirconia.
Veneers are the quick fix for chipped teeth, broken teeth, stained teeth, or discolored teeth. A veneer is a porcelain covering which sticks to the outer part of the tooth and gives it a renewed appearance. They are also used to fill the gaps between teeth if orthodontic treatment is not possible.
