A preventive maintenance appointment is preformed by your Hygienist every 6 months to prevent excessive plaque and calculus build up; along with the removal of any staining. If needed, there are cleanings that are more involved, such as:
A crown covers the entire tooth and surface restoring it to it’s original size and shape. The crown strengthens the tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other restorations.
Reasons for Crowns:
A crown requires at least two office visits. The initial visit, the tooth is prepared, an impression taken and a temporary placed. The second visit, we remove the temporary and fit the crown. Any adjustments needed will be made and the crown will be permanently cemented.
Bonded fillings are a tooth colored composite resin used to restore the function, integrity and aesthetics of a compromised tooth.
Reasons for Bonded Fillings:
The tooth is prepared for the procedure and thoroughly cleaned before the new filling is placed. The composite resin is placed, shaped, adjusted and polished to a natural shape and appearance.
Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
