A dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma. We use various material to fill teeth. In general, there are two category filling material: Amalgam (known as silver/mercury fillings) and Resin (known as composite or white fillings). Dental amalgam fillings are strong and long lasting; they are the least expensive type of filling material and used mainly for posterior teeth. The resins are great materials for restorations of anterior teeth and posterior teeth, these restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
Crown and Bridges
Crown is a cover or cap that Dr. Maddahi can put over a tooth for number of reasons: You might have a cavity that is too large for a filling, cracked tooth, have had root canal treatment or you want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and you want to improve your smile.
A dental bridge is to replace missing teeth, attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth.
If you’re missing more than one teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for many daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it’s difficult to do these things. Missing teeth can and should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Dr. Maddahi places veneers routinely and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
