Tooth coloured restorations are restorative options that enhance your smile's appearance but may also treat an oral health condition.
A tooth-coloured filling in Calgary, AB, for example, treats a dental cavity but does not rely on silver amalgam. Instead, your dentist uses composite resin, which is coloured to blend with your tooth.
Another example of a tooth-coloured restoration is a dental crown. Dental crowns are used widely across dentistry. Your dentist may use one to finish your root canal treatment, cap a dental implant, or anchor a dental bridge. A dental crown can also conceal tooth flaws like chips, discoloration, and shape abnormalities.
A dental crown is a hollow cap that fits over a prepared tooth. It is coloured and shaped to fall in line with your teeth—no one will notice that it is a crown.
Think of tooth-coloured, then, restorations as a way to restore a tooth cosmetically.
Caring for a tooth-coloured filling or crown is simple because you treat them like part of your teeth—brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist on schedule.
