A broken or decayed tooth can be challenging to eat or smile with, but you don’t have to give up on it altogether. As long as enough of the tooth’s structure is still intact, Dr. Heck and Dr. Beshore can repair it with an appropriate dental restoration. Heck Family Dentistry of Lawrence is your stop for long-lasting, natural-looking crowns and fillings that can keep your weakened teeth safe and renew your confidence in your smile. Call us today for restorative dentistry in Lawrence, KS if you have an injured tooth that needs attention.
You can think of a dental crown as a special cap for a tooth. It can be placed for any number of reasons, such as repairing a cavity that is too large for a filling, restoring broken teeth, protecting a weakened tooth, and improving the appearance of a misshapen tooth. Depending on the situation, we might even place a crown on a dental implant to act as a new tooth. Each crown is individually crafted so that it fits right in with the rest of the natural smile.
Once decay has been removed from your tooth, we’ll need to place a filling in the empty space that is left behind. At one point, your only option for fillings would have been a dark-colored metal. Now there are far more aesthetically pleasing options you can turn to. The composite resin in tooth-colored fillings is durable enough to last for years, and it can be shaded to match the surrounding enamel as closely as possible.
