Sometimes teeth need to be restored because of decay or damage. Restorative dentistry refers to procedures, such as dental crowns and fillings, designed to bring teeth back from a damaged state, renewing health and preventing further damage. Encore Dentistry provides restorative dentistry in Arlington, TX to meet your family’s needs with a variety of restorative dental services.
In the past, dental fillings were made from silver amalgam. Today, we utilize a completely different material known as composite resin. Not only is it much easier to work with and apply to damaged teeth, but it can be custom-shaded to match your existing tooth enamel. That means there’s no worry of your fillings showing up in your smile or affecting its appearance. If you need to have your first filling placed or old fillings removed, you can get it done right here in our office!
Customized to fit over your teeth exactly, dental crowns are by far one of the most versatile restorative treatments you can get done at our office. Crowns are typically used to cover teeth damaged by decay or physical injury, but they can also be used to create larger tooth replacements like dentures, dental bridges and dental implants. When you visit our office, you don’t even need to wait two weeks to receive your permanent version!
Thanks to CEREC technology, we can capture impressions of the damaged portion of your tooth, use the impression to create a detailed digital design of your future crown, fabricate that crown entirely in-house, and place it on top of your damaged tooth, all within the same appointment! CEREC is a chairside fabrication device that prevents the need for biting into gray impression material, avoids the need for a temporary crown, and ensures the most accurately made crown possible.
