Preserve your smile with the help of crowns, fillings, and bonding.
When it comes to damaged, chipped or broken teeth it’s important that you have a dentist that you can trust to provide you with the highest quality restorations possible. Our Thornton, CO, dentist Dr. Christina McMillon is more than just an expert dentist with a friendly team, she also focuses on ensuring that each and every patient gets the custom tooth restoration they need for a healthier and more beautiful smile.
Here are just some of the most common tooth restorations that we offer,
Did you know that the average American has three dental fillings? Here at our Thornton, CO, dental practice, we understand the importance of providing esthetically pleasing and metal-free tooth restorations to our patients. You’ll be happy to hear that our tooth-colored fillings are incredibly durable and can preserve a tooth after a cavity while blending in with the rest of the tooth’s enamel. Tooth-colored fillings can last for years and you don’t have to worry about mercury exposure, associated with metal fillings.
Plus, tooth-colored fillings are bonded directly to the teeth so less tooth enamel must be removed (it can actually help to strengthen the tooth).
The same resin used to fill a cavity can also be used to improve the shape, size, color, and overall appearance of a tooth. If you are looking to make small changes to one or more teeth to revamp your smile, then dental bonding may be right for you.
We will first choose the appropriate shade of resin that will blend with the rest of the tooth. From there, we will apply the resin in layers until the desired look is achieved. This is easily the least invasive and most cost-effective cosmetic solution our dental team offers for slightly discolored or misshapen teeth.
Another commonly placed restoration is a dental crown. While crowns have been made from metal in the past, the team at Hearthside Dentistry understands that you want a dependable and long-lasting dental crown that will also look like a natural tooth. This is why our crowns are made from porcelain, another tough, stain-resistant material that we can also match to the shade of your teeth so that no one will even be able to tell which tooth has a crown and which one doesn’t.
