Tooth Colored Dental Restorations
Tooth colored dental restorations provide the most natural looking results for a beautiful smile. They can be used for replacing tooth structure after disease or for enhancing a smile with cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Franklyn Alexander provides a variety of tooth colored dental restoration options.
All Porcelain Crowns
All porcelain dental crowns are a great choice for a front tooth needing to be crowned. All porcelain crowns eliminate the dark line that can appear at the gum line of a traditional crown. Due to the latest advances in dental technology, an all porcelain crown provides both strength and beauty.
Dental veneers are an excellent long-term option for many dental problems including spaces between the teeth and crooked teeth. Veneers cover the entire front of the tooth and can even be used on teeth with uneven color or texture to make them appear uniform. The new materials used for veneers do not stain, so they provide beautiful, long lasting results. Dr. Alexander uses thin veneers with minimal prep to create natural, beautiful smiles.
Dental bonding offers a fairly inexpensive way to correct tooth spacing or gaps between teeth. Bonding does have some drawbacks such as poor color stability. Depending on eating habits, dental bonding will generally start to discolor around 2 – 4 years after placement, and may need to be replaced due to a difference in color between the dental bonding and teeth. Dental bonding is a great choice for teens or those needing a temporary solution.
Tooth Colored Fillings
White or tooth colored fillings used today are strong and provide an excellent alternative to the mercury-containing silver (amalgam) fillings used previously. With tooth colored fillings you do not ever have to worry about mercury exposure or unsightly dark areas on the teeth from amalgam fillings. Tooth colored fillings also eliminate the common problem of a tooth cracking as a result of the mercury expansion in silver fillings. We are proud to be a mercury free practice!
